Cirencester Science & Technology Society

The Society arranges a programme of ten lectures per year for its membership of local scientists, technologists and engineers.  The speakers are drawn mainly from Universities and Research Councils, but also from Industry and Government.  The Society attempts to arrange lectures on a wide range of subjects, covering as many disciplines as possible each year.  Visitors are welcome to all our lectures, but are asked for a donation of £3 (£5 for the Public Lecture).  Students are admitted free.  A report of each lecture is posted to the Lecture Reports page of this website shortly after each Lecture.

One of the lectures in each year’s programme is a Public Lecture.  For this event the Society invites a prominent public speaker to give a lecture on a subject which is topical and will attract people in Cirencester and the surrounding district.  In October 2013 the lecture was given by Professor Chris Gaskell, Principal of the Royal Agricultural University.   The title of the talk was 'What Science and Technology can do for UK Agriculture'.   For more information see our Lecture Programme page.

The Society arranges visits to research centres and other institutions that will be of interest to members.  In May members visited the Hinckley Point B power station.  Details of all future visits will be posted to the Announcements page of this website as and when they are arranged.


The Society publishes a Bulletin for its members twice a year.  These are posted to the Newsletters page of this website and is available in hard copy for members who do not have Internet access.


Details of the membership fees and directions to the main venues used by the Society can be found on the Members area of this website.   The Constitution of the Society can be downloaded by clicking here.
