Live talks take place at the University Women's Club in Mayfair. We stream some talks, usually from overseas speakers, via Zoom. Whenever possible, talks are recorded and made available to members via the Members' Area of the website.

We also organise trips and tours for members and their guests. These are advertised in the monthly newsletters.

This summer there have been trips for members in July to Boughton House in Northamptonshire and in August to Kettle's Yard and the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge. In early September there was a visit to museums in Poland, in October to Knole Park in Kent, and in November a curator-led talk on the Burma to Myanmar exhibition at the British Museum. Details of all visits appear in the members' newsletters.
