About the Younger Members’ events

A lively programme of social events is organised by the Younger Members’ Committee throughout the year and forms one of the ways in which the Society engages with its younger members. Events are for like-minded members and Fellows to meet each other; most attendees fall into the 20-40 age group, but anyone over the age of 18 is welcome to attend. Regular events include drinks in the bar following Monday night lectures, wine tasting, quizzes, and an annual evening of microlectures.
