Ivor Gurney (1890-1937) is regarded as one of the greatest composers of English art-song of the twentieth century and one of the most significant poets of the First World War. His Collected Poems were published in 1982, edited by P. J.Kavanagh and many of his poems are included in anthologies, including the Oxford Book of English Verse ... The Ivor Gurney Society was founded in 1995 to promote interest and scholarship in and around the life and work of the Gloucester composer-poet ... The Ivor Gurney Trust’s primary role is to advise and support those involved in research of the life and works of Ivor Gurney. In this regard, the Trust can authorise the use of archival materials held in the Ivor Gurney Collection at the Gloucestershire Archives for the purpose of academic research, publication and performance.’

Open Lectures & Talks'Society Meetings are held at least five times during the year, including the Annual General Meeting of the Society which takes place each November. Meetings include formal business of the Society such as elections and admissions, as well as lectures intended for a broad mathematical audience. The London Mathematical Society Popular Lectures present exciting topics in mathematics (and its applications) to a wide audience. Each year, the LMS Popular Lectures feature two lecturers, who have been chosen for their mathematical distinction. Usually, there is one pure mathematician and one applied mathematician. The lectures are suitable for all who have an interest in mathematics ... The Popular Lectures is a free annual event held during either June or July in London and repeated in late September at one other UK venue; for the past few years, this has been Birmingham University.'
