WHAT’S HAPPENING AT THE RSAA?
The RSAA hosts free lectures for members every other week during term time. Lectures typically take place on a Wednesday in a Central London location, and if the lecture is at 1.15pm it is preceded by an optional buffet lunch. Wine is served before evening lectures.
In addition to the lecture programme, there are also a number of social events where members and their guests can meet others with similar interests.
Although a printed calendar is sent out to members, dates and venues are subject to change and additional events may be added to the calendar at short notice. It is therefore advisable to check this online calendar for the latest details.
