Our public events will enrich your knowledge of the world's people, places and environments.
The Society organises over 400 events every year and most are open to the public as well as our members.
In London, our events take place at our headquarters in Kensington and include topical discussions, travel events, exhibitions and talks.
We also run events across the UK, many of which are organised by our volunteer-led regional committees.
