Society Lectures

The Society holds a monthly lecture on a diverse range of astronomical topics which are presented by visiting experts. They are held either online or at one of our regular venues on the third Tuesday each month (except for January which has a special event). Our speakers are usually well regarded academics or experts in the world of astronomy and astrophysics.

The meetings are generally recorded and are made available in the members pages for viewing by those who can’t attend at the time or want to watch again.

See below for the full list of upcoming lectures. For past lectures please follow this link.
