About London Branch 

We are a long established branch serving boroughs in Inner and Greater London.  We have a supportive and friendly committee who meet twice a term to organise events.  Our committee meetings usually take place in the coffee bar at the Royal Festival Hall.

We aim to hold meetings twice a term.  These are hosted by different settings around London in venues that we hope will interest our members.  We book a wide range of speakers in order to provide a mixture of practical and theoretical sessions and our meetings are generally well attended.  We provide refreshments and the opportunity to socialise before the meeting starts, which is followed by approximately an hour’s presentation.

Our upcoming events include:
