Events

The Society organises a regular programme of talks and seminars between September and May each year. Our meetings are held in Manchester and in London.

With the decline of the Covid-19 emergency the Society is planning to resume face-to-face meetings in September if conditions allow. However, since the Zoom meetings for the past year have been outstandingly successful in allowing many more members to attend than hitherto, we are working on a plan to offer Zoom access as well as “in person” attendance.

As soon as we have organised the logistics of these “hybrid” meetings we will update the website with details and will email all members. In the meanwhile, registration is not yet possible.

It will be necessary to pre-register your intention to attend events in London. We anticipate that it will also be necessary to register to attend Zoom meetings so that we can email you the information you will need to attend. Manchester events do not require pre-booking for in-person attendance.

  • London CCS London meetings are at the BCS location – 25 Copthall Avenue, Moorgate EC2R 7BP. The venue is near the corner of Copthall Avenue and London Wall, a five minute walk from Bank Station (connection from Waterloo) and three from Moorgate (connections from all the other major London rail terminii except Marylebone)

    Lectures start at 14:30 but many members are in the delightful habit of coming early from 14:00 for informal discussions beforehand.

    Please note that the BCS operates a system of pre-registration for meetings at Copthall Avenue.

    You may pre-register using the booking links below.

    There are some notes for prospective lecturers at our London events here.
