Coronavirus (Covid-19) update

Following careful consideration of the latest Government advice about the current course of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, the Royal Society has made the decision to implement a closure of its buildings to conferencing clients up until at least 31 March 2021. That date will be kept under review, subject to further guidance from Government.

We have taken this decision in the best interests of our conferencing clients and staff.  Should you wish to discuss an event after that date or you have an event already booked with us please contact the venue hire team.
