Sneak peek awesome events for 2021-22

With donations from Friends, we are creating our programme of events for the 2021-22 academic year, launching over summer.

It promises an exciting and enthralling series of events - have a sneak peek of some topics and events for the Autumn term. You can already book in advance!

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 2021-22 Programme Appeal

We are reliant on event revenue therefore our income is depleted through the pandemic. On the horizon is the 2021-22 programme.

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

We have more events coming up over the next few weeks - make sure you subscribe to our e-news to hear about these!
