‘The Academy was founded in 2000 to provide a forum committed to open and robust public debate in which ideas can be interrogated, argued for and fought over. We organise intelligent public debates, on controversial topics, and most importantly challenge contemporary knee-jerk orthodoxies. One focus of our work is to ensure that new generations look behind the headlines and avoid over simplistic conclusions on difficult topics. We are especially concerned about the “dumbing down” of debate, and to this end we organise a range of high-profile public events.’ Events have included an annual Battle of Ideas Conference held in London in the Autumn.

'The contemporary Adlerian approach to counselling and psychotherapy is based on the pioneering work of Alfred Adler, the physician and psychologist acclaimed alongside Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung as one of the "Big Three" founders of psychotherapy. A very popular public speaker in his time, his international lecture tours attracted a wide and varied audience, and many of the innumerable books that flowed from his talks and seminars are still in print today ... From the early 1950s the Adlerian Society has held monthly public lectures at this historic venue in central London [Conway Hall], where Alfred Adler himself lectured in the 1930s. The topics vary widely and are always relevant to the development and application of Adlerian psychology today. All are welcome (no need to book). Online tickets available.'

‘The First World War Aviation Historical Society’  ALERT ‘The Cross & Cockade International London meeting has renewed itself! Following the decision to end meetings on board HMS President, a group of members has decided to meet instead in local pubs. It's a similar format to the York meeting - no formal talks, just a group of like minded individuals discussing WW1 aviation over a pint of whatever takes their fancy.’

'Docomomo-uk is a group of architects, researchers, and other enthusiasts of the Modern Movement in Architecture. This phenomena came about in the 1920s and 30s fired by new discoveries in materials and techniques, and by the need for social change. It is a Movement that defines the 20th and 21st centuries as it left historicism behind and created a new identity. We live in an age of discovery and progress; Docomomo seeks to highlight and protect these achievements ... We meet regularly in central London over a glass of wine for evening lectures and discussions about leading Modernist architects, their work and ideas.'

'The Library was established by the will of Dr Daniel Williams, the leading London nonconformist minister of his day, who died in January 1716. He left instructions for his trustees to house his collection as a public library and to make it available to nonconformist ministers, tutors and students in the City of London ... The Friends of Dr Williams’s Library was established in November 1946 ... Their stated intention was to "develop and make more widely known the very considerable research facilities of the Library". To that end, the Friends instituted a series of Annual Lectures to promote interest in, and support for, the Library’s collections.'
