The Society sponsors an annual lecture in London. Up to 2019 this has taken place every November at the Ondaatje Wing Theatre at the National Portrait Gallery. The 2019 lecture was delivered by Martin Jennings FRSS and titled From Myth to Molten Bronze: Making Public Statues. Click play and listen to the lecture above.
The National Portrait Gallery is closing for renovation from this summer for three years and a new temporary venue for the Society’s lectures, starting November 2020, will be published on the site shortly.
