Time and Place

Meetings are held at in the Gradidge Room at The Art Workers Guild, 6 Queen Square, London WC1N 3AT, (, which is located about halfway down the West Side of the Square click for map.

The Gradidge Room is a small venue and our meetings are more akin to seminars than to lectures.

We meet at 6 for 6:30pm. The meeting itself lasts until about 8 pm, with time split approximately equally between the speaker’s address and the subsequent discussion with questions, comment and observations from the floor.

Drinks are available both before and after the meeting. We aim to be out of the drinks room by 9 pm. There is sometimes an opportunity to take supper with speaker as guest. Those doing so leave earlier.

Meeting Charges

A small charge is made to cover the costs of drinks and other refreshments, which are served before and after the meeting.  Charges (including drinks/refreshments): Members – £5; Non-members – £10; Students – £2.50.
