'AMES was born in 1987 and expanded from the small band of class attendees and local interested people into a national society of around 100 members. The aim of the Society, as stated in its Constitution, was, and still is, to promote and encourage interest in the History, Archaeology and Cultures of the ancient civilisations of the Near East. The new society was unique in the UK in embracing all countries of the Ancient Near East, including Egypt. We believe it is currently unique in this respect ... Benefits of Membership include ... talks by speakers who are acknowledged experts in their fields – at reduced members’ rates.'

'The Friends are from a wide range of backgrounds with interests ranging from archaeology through natural, social & industrial history to fine art and artefacts.The Museums & Gallery contain an extensive range of subjects which allows us to explore our broad range of interests & the relationships between them.The money we raise by subscriptions and from the talks, visits and holidays which we organise goes entirely to support the Museums & Gallery.'

'Set up in March 2011 with the specific aim of providing an opportunity in Lincoln to hear respected and published theologians of all denominations and faiths ... We operate as an "open" network with no actual membership and no specific affiliation to any Church or faith group. Some people who attend claim no religious faith but are interested in the place religion has in society and current thought. Lectures are open to all people who are interested in the subjects being presented. Our approach encourages lively discussion and debate in a constructive atmosphere.'
