Seminars

We have a whole host of exciting seminars coming up.  Tickets are normally released on Eventbrite around one month before the seminar.  Our membership secretary will email members when ticket sales go live.  Seminars are usually held at the London Metropolitan Archives with doors opening at 5.30pm for a start time of 6pm.  There will be no seminar in August as this is when we hold our annual Summer Soirée.  Here are some dates for your diaries:

  • 6th September – ‘Saved from a skip and selected in a Swiss chateau: the curious journeys of archive collections at the Charles Dickens Museum’ [this is the seminar rescheduled from March following some highly unseasonable snow!].
  • 4th October – ‘The Extraordinary Records in the London Metropolitan Archives for the Rebuilding of St Paul’s Cathedral after the Great Fire.’
  • 1st November – ‘Mapping history with The Layers of London Project: partnership, public engagement and the art of looking up.’
  • 6th December – Archives of the Worshipful Company of Musicians

Practicals:

We run workshops for professional archivists and archives users based on the needs of our membership.  While we have none currently planned, we would like to hear from you if you have a particular skill or topic you would like to see covered.  You can contact us here.
