Events

The London Society is committed to helping Londoners engage in the debate surrounding conservation, development and planning in the capital.

We are building up a full programme of events to inform and engage the widest possible audience with tours, walks, roundtable discussions, debates and lectures. We aim to bring urban enthusiasts together to collectively contend with the challenges of the 21st century city.

If a talk is sold out, please do register on the waitlist that will be in operation, as this is how we will gauge what event spaces are used for future talks. Please be aware of our event cancellation policy.
