President's Appeal 2010 to 2011

The Society raised £860,000 to restore the external facade of our historical Kensington building and to create a new Members' Room. Many individual members and Fellows, trusts and foundations and other organisations supported the appeal.

Members' Room

Opened in September 2011, the elegant Nightingale Room, formerly the Society’s library, was transformed to create a space for Fellows and members. The Members' Room offers a fully equipped private and informal space in the centre of London for members to work, meet or relax before lectures - as well as offering small rooms to host meetings.

North face restoration

Unveiled by the Society's President, Michael Palin, in April 2011, the north face of the Society's beautiful and historic building was restored to its former glory. A London landmark with a Grade 2* listing for architectural distinction and overlooking Hyde Park, the north face was in severe need of repair and work to preserve against future deterioration.

Any further funds raised will help us repair the forecourt at front of the building.
