Fireside Chats

As our Fireside Chats mini-series in summer 2020 was so popular we ran saeason 2 over this summer for Members and their guests. Fireside Chats with Imperial experts featured a short talk, an informal chat and live Q&A. We also virtually went abroad with guided visits to scientific facilities.

Check out the chats featured on the Event Archive page.

Free tickets for schools at in-person lectures

When we are back running live in-person events, we have free school tickets for our public lectures at Imperial. A teacher can bring a group or students can book themselves by simply providing us with the name of the school and the number of students attending the talk. Sign up to get news of when we return to in-person lectures and then you can book for FREE.

Friends Programme Support Appeal

We are reliant on event revenue therefore our income is depleted through the pandemic. We have set up the 2021-22 programme but...

...to continue running this, we need your support to provide a wealth of knowledge for a further year. We do hope you can help Friends!

We often run additional events to the current programme over the year so make sure you sign-up for Friends e-news to hear about these as they are added.
