EVENTS

events 1Since its establishment in 1935 the CLS has held a series of annual events - lectures, study days, discussion groups, luncheons, and outings – in London. Today, the Society works to continue these traditions by hosting a number of lectures at Swedenborg Hall, and an annual luncheon to celebrate Lamb’s birthday in February. New members are very welcome to join us.
