Live talks take place at the University Women's Club in Mayfair. We also 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.
