SRS Public Lectures

The Society ran a major lecture series in 2008-09 in venues across the UK and Ireland, involving ten speakers from a range of disciplines. Following on from the success of this event, Council took the decision to continue with an annual public lecture in a university, museum or gallery outside London aimed at attracting the widest possible audience. Since 2012 a second annual Welsh Lecture has also taken place.
