What’s on: future study days

Study days are designed to explore specific subjects in depth, under the leadership of one or more expert lecturers. The topics range widely but we try to include subjects relating to forthcoming major exhibitions in London where possible, and recent study days have included Anglo-Saxon Treasures, the Arts and Craft Movement, Cubism and Caravaggio.

Study days are held at various central London locations (often either the Conway Hall, Bloomsbury Baptist Church Hall or the Keynes Library at Birkbeck) and typically last for five or six hours, including breaks for refreshments (tea and coffee provided) and lunch (not included).

Current fees for a Study Day are £38 for members and £43 for a guest.
