Great things to do

FiSH runs a whole host of brilliant activities, from friendly get-togethers, to board games sessions, to exercise classes, to genuinely interesting talks and lectures. There’s at least one regular event to join every weekday and we also run one-off trips and outings to great gardens, stately homes, museums and more.
