We are gradually re-opening our building to staff, Fellows and members, and other visitors. Our current plan is outlined below, but please note that this is subject to change at short notice so please check our website for the latest information before you travel.
Also note that we are not able to admit anyone into the building who does not have a pre-booked appointment, or a pre-booked ticket for an event.
All visitors will be asked to wear a face covering when in public areas of the building (unless exempt), sanitise hands upon entry and observe the one-way system that is in place.

Monday night lectures will be held in person in the Ondaatje Theatre from September. However, there will be a reduced capacity and all Fellows and members wanting to attend in person must pre-book a free ticket.
Pre-booking will be in place for all Monday night lectures during the period September to December.
Due to the reduced capacity, all Monday night lectures in the autumn term will be for Fellows and members only. No guests will be admitted.
We will continue to live stream all of the Monday night lectures so you can watch them from wherever you are.
From September, our events, conference and training programme will be a mixture of in person, online and hybrid events. Please see individual event listings for information about particular events.
To attend any event in person, you will need to have a pre-booked ticket.
