What’s on: future lectures

Lectures cover an extensive range of topics relating to art and architecture. Each lecture lasts for one hour, and is followed by a glass of wine, which gives members the opportunity to socialise and to discuss the lecture with other members, and to talk to the speaker.

Lectures are generally held at The Art Workers’ Guild, 6 Queen Square, London WC1N 3AT, and usually start at 6pm. Members may attend lectures without charge, and can invite guests for a fee of £5 each. Visiting full-time students may attend for a fee of £3 (fees are payable at the door). There is no need to book.
