Lectures

Held every spring and autumn, the SPAB's popular lecture series offers three or four informal talks linked to an engaging historic building or conservation theme.  For the time being the lecture series - and most of the SPAB's other occasional lectures - are being held online.  Discounts are available for SPAB members.
