2022 London Lecture Series

As part of our management arrangements, we require all members and guests to register in advance of each lecture. The number of available seats for the in-person events 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 events@ahsoc.org.

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.
