Events

The Society organises a regular programme of talks and seminars between September and May each year.

In view of the present Covid-19 emergency the Society has decided that it will not be possible to hold our next few lectures in our usual “face-to-face” fashion. For the next few months, until the situation eases, lectures will be delivered over the Internet using ZOOM. In the absence of geographic constraints, the program will be a joint one.

It remains necessary to pre-register your intention to attend events organised from London so that we can email you the information you will need to attend. Click on the symbol below to book places on the event.

In the present circumstances this timetable must be regarded as rather uncertain in respect of events in the far future.
