Fireside Chats – summer 2021

Join us and join in – our very own summer mini-series exclusively for Members. As our Fireside Chats last summer were so popular we are running Season 2.

We will also virtually take you abroad with a few guided visits to international scientific facilities!

Chats will be added to over the summer.

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 are setting up the 2021-22 programme but...

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

We are adding more events for you to enjoy over the summer - make sure you subscribe to our e-news to hear about these!
