In keeping with the PESGB objective we offer members a monthly lecture programme in London and Aberdeen.

  • The London evening lectures usually take place on every second Tuesday of the month, apart from March, August and December. They are held at The Geological Society, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1J 0BG. Doors open at 5.45pm and the lecture begins at 6pm, followed by a wine reception held in the lower library.Please note that doors will be closed once we reach capacity (135) so get there early to avoid disappointment. 

  • The Aberdeen evening lectures take place on every third Tuesday of the month, apart from July and December. They are held at the Copthorne Hotel and begin at 6.30pm but drinks are available from 6pm. The lecture is followed by a drinks reception.

  • There is no charge to members attending these lectures but please remember to take your membership card along as these are member-only events.
