Simple Search... (top right) must be minimum of 3, maximum of 20 characters

Searches for one or more than one character string within these Fields:

  • Subject Category
  • Organization Title
  • Named Lectures & Talks
  • Venue for the Organization's lectures/talks, including Postcode
  • District/Unitary Authority, Historic County and Country/Region within which the Venue is located
  • Index phrases used where Events are held at Various Places (e.g. 'Across the UK', 'Across the County')
  • Also Indexed (used for parent bodies, other related organizations, alternative organization titles, etc)
  • Type of Body (e.g. Local Society, Discussion Group & Club, Festival, Museum & Gallery, Research Institute & Centre)

Advanced Search

More precisely searches each of the above Fields (apart from Postcode, Named Lectures & Talks, Various Places, and Also Indexed), each Field searchable either singly, or in combination.

With Advanced Search you can search across the entire Directory; or just within a particular Subject Category. When you enter search terms in more than one Field, Return results if all of the following conditions are met is equivalent to Boolean AND; Return results if any ... to Boolean OR.

Browse using the Subject Categories, the A-Z at the top of the page, or via the hyperlinks within each Record

The Subject Categorization system used is specially designed for this Directory. All sorts of facets can be used to arrange subject headings hierarchically, so you may well not find a subject (or indeed an organization) categorized where you might expect ... Occasionally, organizations are placed under more than one heading; but I only do this where it seems likely to be really useful.

Address/Map Reference is given if a particular place is usually used for lectures and talks

The address normally generates a custom-made Google Map - where the single pinpoint should be the event venue (this map appears at the foot of the 'Full' Record, accessed by clicking on the Organization Title in the 'Brief' Record).  Click on the 'Powered by Google' icon in the Map's bottom left-hand corner to pop-up a standard Google map of the wider area surrounding the Venue.

If it seems likely to be helpful (or I just find it interesting) , there is sometimes further information

Note especially that this further information is simply copied from the relevant website (as is virtually all the other data in the Directory) and placed in 'single quotes' . You can check whether there is any further information of this type by clicking > Print at the foot of the 'Brief' Record (or you can just hyperlink via the Organization Title to the 'Full' Record).
