What's on in Battersea

Every year we arrange a wide range of events, visits to historic buildings, and talks or public meetings on topics of local interest or concern. Members' only events will be clearly designated as Private, other society-organised events are open to the public. Of course you can join the Society very easily via our online membership page. This list also includes other events taking place locally or elsewhere in London which you may find of interest.

If you wish to pay by cheque you should download a booking form (which also contains details of other events).

If you'd rather check out forthcoming events in a simple list you'll find that here.
