About the Younger Members’ events:
A lively programme of social events is organised by the Younger Members’ Committee throughout the year and forms one of the ways in which the Society engages with its younger members. Events are for like-minded Fellows and members to meet each other; most attendees fall into the 20-40 age group. Regular events include drinks in the Members' bar following Monday night lectures, quizzes, and an annual evening of microlectures.
