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 anticipated ending of Covid-19 restrictions 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 have worked out a plan to offer Zoom access as well as “in person” attendance.

It will be necessary to pre-register your intention to attend events in London and 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.

When you book one of our lectures on the Eventbrite system, you will be asked to decide whether you would like to attend in person or whether you would rather attend using Zoom. In the event that face-to-face meetings are not possible, anybody who has booked will, of course, be given details of the Zoom meeting.

  • Manchester meetings are organised by the North West Group of the CCS. The lectures are normally held at The Manchester Metropolitan University, Chester Street, Manchester, M1 5GD - Room E005 in the John Dalton East Building (subject to possible change). Lectures will start at 18:00
  • 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.

    You may pre-register using the booking links below.

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