Lectures

Held every spring and autumn in London, the SPAB’s popular lecture series offers three or four informal talks linked to an engaging historic building or conservation theme. Lectures are usually held on a weekday evening in Spitalfields and include a sociable drinks reception. Tickets are available on the door, but some lectures are very popular so it’s advisable to book in advance. Discounts are available for SPAB members.
