The Society holds four Quarterly meetings per year. Normally, two meetings are held in London (October and January), one meeting in Birmingham (April) and the Summer meeting in July at a different venue each year. The Summer meeting is usually a very casual affair with a picnic and strawberries and cream.
Each meeting is made up of lectures, shows, a market and provides a great opportunity to meet like-minded people while learning about the lantern or taking the chance to see other people's performance with the lantern. Often there is a talk by someone about their latest researches and investigations.
Attending meetings is one of the Society's major Membership benefits.
Occasionally, a DVD of recent meeting highlights is complied and sent to all members.*
