Winter Lecture Series 2021/22

Throughout the year, we organise a series of monthly talks in order to bring together members of our community and discuss a range of issues. We are thrilled to announce our programme of London Gardens Trust talks for the 2021/22 season, which will take place on Zoom on a Tuesday evening at 6pm.

Talks Programme

Tickets cost £4 per lecture for LGT members and £6 per lecture for non-members.

Please note that all of our lectures are available only through Zoom and are recorded. After each lecture we send out a link to the recording to all ticket holders. This link will be available for one week after the lecture has taken place.

Zoom now asks for your permission to be recorded. Zoom will not allow you to watch the lecture unless you give your permission. Also, we kindly ask that you keep your camera turned off so as not to distract the speakers.
