WHAT’S HAPPENING AT THE RSAA?
The RSAA hosts regular lectures between September and June. Lectures typically take place on a Wednesday in a Central London location either at lunchtime or in the early evening.
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.
A printed calendar is sent out to members, but 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.
