2020 London Lecture Series

 

As part of our management and security arrangements, we 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 07733 481 595.

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.

New venue for 2020

With the move of the Society back to London, and the establishment of offices close to Monument, it is time for another change.
