The Society for Theatre Research

2015-16 Lecture Programme



This series of evening lectures, given by invited speakers, is held monthly in London during the winter. The lectures are open to everyone, and each is followed by discussion and refreshments. Included in the programme is a special Annual Address, usually in May following the Society's AGM, and the Christmas lecture, named in honour of the late Margaret Collins, whose substantial bequest to the Society, for the purpose of funding the lecture series, continues to make these evenings possible.

Lectures are held either at the Art Workers' Guild, Bloomsbury (map), or at the Swedenborg Hall, Holborn (map). All lectures are free and open to the public.
