WINTER EVENTS 2019 - 2020


The society arranges a series of lectures (given by professional or academic geologists) on geological or environmental topics in the winter months (October to March).  Once a year there is an event where members have the opportunity to give their own short talks or demonstrations to the rest of the society.

Anyone interested in joining the Society is welcome to attend a lecture or two as a visitor, to find out more about who we are and how we operate.  Just turn up - or contact us first to confirm subject, dates, times, etc.


Lectures are held at 7.30pm in the Arthur Holmes Lecture Theatre which is located at the Durham University Science Site on South Road.  The lecture theatre is in the Department of Chemistry and is downstairs from the Porters Lodge.


Lectures are followed by tea and coffee to which all speakers, members and guests are cordially invited.

The March meeting is preceeded by the AGM, which lasts about 15 minutes.

The December and March meetings will be followed by cheese and wine.

Feb 2018: Problem just discovered, beyond our control.  The map above actually shows the way to the Calman Lecture Theatre.  The Arthur Holmes Lecture Theatre is nearby.  Go 100 metres East, 60 metres North, in through red doors and downstairs one level.
