2017 London Lecture Series

 

Please note that we have moved from Cannon Place to a new Westminster venue. As part of our management and security arrangements, we now require all members and guests to register in advance of each lecture. The number of available seats is limited, and they are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

It’s all free—simply follow the links to register via our online booking system. If you have any difficulties please email ahs.londonlectures@gmail.com. For those without an email address, or who do not wish to use the booking system, please register by calling 01580 200 155 (24-hour answering machine).

If you register for a lecture and subsequently find you cannot attend, please email the address above, or call the office, so that your place can be released for somebody else.

Registration for later lectures will open nearer the time.
