News Events Meetings

Regular Meetings at 15 Abchurch Lane

Meetings are held at our London premises usually twice per month from September to June.

Our Archivist holds about 700 handouts provided by displayers at meetings since 1918. These range from single sheets of paper listing the items on display to extensive publications including complex images that can be regarded as significant contributions to the literature. Explanatory notes were at first provided only occasionally but have become normal practice since the 1980s. Many contain material of value to researchers and their production quality has steadily improved. These have been scanned and converted to searchable PDF documents.

5pm meetings that have been videoed may be viewed on YouTube, accessible through links on the All Meetings with Documents page.
