Fortification Events Calendar 

One of the agreed actions from the Victorian Forts Conference on February 15th 2022 was that the PFS should create and manage a calendar of events held at Victorian forts.  This is to allow fort enthusiasts to plan their visits and also to help organisers avoid any date clashes.  If this proves to be useful, we might develop it into some form of on-line shared calendar.  To get started quickly, and to get some feedback, we are going to try out a simple spreadsheet first. This is a "work in progress" and it will be regularly updated.  If you see some errors or omissions, get back to us on the "Contact Us" button.
