FoMBL usually meets 3 times a year, in February / March, June and October / November. The venues for the meetings are places of interest near the Meadows and Bruntsfield Links. In the past we have met in Barclay-Viewforth Church, Heriots School chapel, St Thomas Of Aquin's High School, The Othodox Community of St Andrew, Archers' Hall and Peter's Yard Cafe among others. As well as visiting these interesting buildings, speakers are invited to talk about topics such as Management of Parks and the History of the Meadows.
