'The CRC is a UK based group catering for enthusiasts interested in railways outside the British Isles, whether they be main-line, industrial or preserved ... It holds regular meetings both in London and Stafford. These usually take the form of a slide or video show, as well as affording members the opportunity to exchange news and gossip. The emphasis tends to be on steam although more modern forms of traction also find a place in the programme.'

'Since its formation in 1858, the GA has actively promoted the study of geology to all who are interested in the past, present and future of the natural world. It is a friendly and inclusive organisation and welcomes everyone, regardless of the level of their knowledge ... The Association organises a series of illustrated evening lectures on a wide range of geological topics. These are held on the first Friday of the month in Burlington House ... Following the talk we would invite you to join us for a reception in the lower library with wine and nibbles ... The Geologists’ Association is not just for those with ready access to London. Many Members throughout the British Isles have formed Local Groups, which organize their own meetings and events, or also belong to Affiliated Societies.'

We would love you to join them ... We have an active programme of talks and events with paid-for talks for members and non-members in the Reading Room and regular free events in the 6th floors members' suite.'

Others come to the bookshop for a warm welcome by our knowledgeable staff and others come to peruse the library and archive, using the study space for research. Still others come to see exhibitions and experience the unique ambience and organic architecture. All are welcome.'
