Public Events at the Royal Society of Chemistry

We run a regular programme of public events throughout the year including our monthly public lecture series on the first Thursday of each month.

Most of these events are open to both Royal Society of Chemistry members and members of the general public, friends and families.  Booking is required as the events are very popular.

If you are unable to attend any of these events, many are webcast live and also available to watch on demand via the Past Events link.
