Events

The Georgian Group organises a wide range of member events including lectures, walking tours and country visits. The current season’s events are listed on this page.

Our evening lectures at 6 Fitzroy Square are open to both members and non-members – doors open at 6.15pm, lectures start at 6.30pm. Most other events run by the Georgian Group require membership to attend (unless otherwise noted in the listing).

All bookings should be made online via the website. If you have any questions or problems booking via the website please contact the office on 020 7529 8920 or email members@georgiangroup.org.uk.

All bookings are subject to our Terms & Conditions – please read through before purchasing any tickets. 

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, at present all our events are taking place online. Coronavirus restrictions permitting, we will be re-introducing some in-person events later in the year. Many of the online lectures will be recorded and will be available for ticket holders to re-watch for a limited period of time after the event takes place; please look on the individual event listings to find out which talks will be recorded.
