The Group holds London meetings twice yearly, in April and October. Meetings are informal, and usually start at 1.30 pm. with a live auction and are followed by displays by members on a set theme or topic. It is a good opportunity to discuss the material displayed and ask questions about any aspect of Sudan stamps and postal history. Non members are most welcome at a meeting if they are interested in joining.

A highlight of the Group’s activities is the conference held every two years, usually at a hotel in the provinces. It gives members and guests the opportunity to participate in a specific study topic, to view and discuss displays by leading Sudan philatelists and postal historians, display items from their own collections, take part in a competition, live auction, bourse and exchange information during a residential weekend.

Sudan Study Group - Conference of April 2013 was a very successful event very much enjoyed by all who attended. A relaxed convivial atmosphere, comfortable hotel and interesting programme resulted in an interesting and educational weekend for both members and their guests.
