A-Z LECTURES and CATEGORIES

Local Society: Hereford

Category Europe

'French Clubs affiliated to and with talks supported by Alliance Française de Londres. Please note that admission to events organised by French Circles are entirely a matter for them and the Alliance Francaise de Londres is not responsible for or involved in admission policies to events.' (Note I have added a small number of Localities hosting 'French Clubs' but not referenced in the AFL List at the time of Review.)

'We inspire, enable and encourage people to get involved with history, whether in the classroom, at college, in the library or at home. We passionately believe the study of history should be accessible to all people at all levels of study ... The Historical Association is an active organisation with events happening up and down the UK. The local branches all have a lively lecture programme open to both members of the association and any general member of the public wishing to come along.'

'We are the IET and we inspire, inform and influence the global engineering community to engineer a better world. As a diverse home across engineering and technology, we share knowledge that helps make better sense of the world in order to solve the challenges that matter. It’s why we are uniquely placed to champion engineering ... Local Networks are groups of members that come together to deliver a series of activities designed to promote the importance of science, engineering and technology to the general public, encourage young people to enter the profession and provide opportunities for engineers to share and develop knowledge and network with each other.''

'The Woolhope Club is the society for people of an enquiring mind interested in the county of Herefordshire, though many of its members live outside the county and its yearly journal (the Transactions) can be found in libraries across the world. The Club’s interests include archaeology, geology, history and natural history. Most of its activities are based in Herefordshire and the Marches and this is reflected in the topics covered in our journals, but some expeditions are made further afield, occasionally outside the UK. Members come together for lectures in Hereford during the winter months and go on excursions during the summer. The Club often visits places not accessible to the general public.'
