Contact our NBS Secretary §.  

Meetings held: Weston Favell Parish Hall, Booth Lane South, Northampton NN3 3NS

News:-Last month photographs were taken and the February meeting gave ample opportunity totell us what YOU did.

Prospective members are welcome to come and sample a meeting.


We meet on the first Thursday of each month. (See Calendar)

Tea, coffee and biscuits are available to ensure that you do not get parched during the three hour sessions.

We have guest speakers, display show trees at a local venues, exhibit at annual trade fairs and hold regular workshop days on Saturdays.

Recently some local East Midlands clubs have folded through lack of numbers. Something we do not have. We have taken in several new membesr from such groups. Although the journeys from Bedford, Peterborough may not be wonderful at night, remember that travel sharing is sometimes possible with fellow members.

Hello! Things are looking up for you. We would like to welcome you to the Northamptonshire Bonsai Society otherwise known as NBS. We would like to ask that you contact our Secretary before coming along to experience a monthly meeting. We are a friendly bunch who love our trees. We show them each month on our display table. All varieties of trees are brought out over the year. It's wonderful to discuss what might improve them.
