Between the Autumn and Spring (usually September to May) we organise a programme of monthly lectures on Wednesday evenings and Saturday afternoons; these are held in the Lecture Theatre of the Grosvenor Museum or online via Zoom.

Our lectures cover a wide range of topics and are given by speakers who are experts in their field. In addition, conferences are occasionally organised in partnership with other organisations. Admission to lectures is free to members of the Society. Visitors are welcome on payment of an admission fee, normally £5.00. Students free entry with valid student card (except Newstead lecture).

If you are not a member and would like to attend any of the lectures listed, why not join CAS for £20 or £10 for a student member. This will provide you with free access to CAS lectures all year round
