An annual compilation of articles on Local History, called "Level Talk" is free to members.

Talks are held in Langport Library, Whatley, Langport starting at 7.30pm on the first Monday of the month, excepting Bank Holidays, when they meet a week later. There are no meetings in July and August. Refreshments are available at the end of each meeting.
