What’s on: future Online lectures

Online lectures last for one hour and cover an extensive range of topics relating to art and architecture. Members may attend lectures free of charge but booking is required via WebCollect. Please note that lectures are open to Society members only.

Lectures are delivered via Zoom and you will need to be familiar with this app in order to participate – I’m afraid we do not have the capacity to provide any back-up or advice on the use of Zoom. We recommend that you log on to Zoom 15 minutes before the start time of the event even if you are familiar with the app since the process can take some time if a lot of participants are logging on at the same time.

If you reserve a place you will receive an invitation in advance containing details which you will need to join the event.

NB: Booking closes 48 hours before the event.
