2021 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 places 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 cancel your booking so that your place can be released for somebody else.

Registration for later lectures will open nearer the time.

AHS meetings for 2021

It has become increasingly clear that we will not be in a position to reliably hold in-person events for the foreseeable future.

Fortunately, there is the alternative of offering online events, and recent experiences have been encouraging.

The November 2020 London meeting was successfully held via a Zoom webinar, and future meetings are planned in the same way until further notice.
