'The Society was formed in 1978 by a group of enthusiasts who shared an interest in family history research in the historic area to the east of the City of London. Now a registered charity with over 1,800 members worldwide, the Society has no central offices, telephones or paid staff and all our services are provided by volunteer members ... Our geographic area of interest is that part of Greater London, north of the Thames and east of the old City of London gates of Aldgate & Bishopsgate. Then eastwards through the modern day London Boroughs of Tower Hamlets, Hackney, Newham, Barking and Dagenham through Redbridge to the edge of Metropolitan Essex at Havering.'

It is named after the first Astronomer Royal, John Flamsteed ... Our main lecture meetings are held once a month between September and June, usually on a Monday evening ... They cover the full range of astronomy and space science – from black holes to solar eclipses – with guest speakers from all the leading universities and space institutes.'

'There are many events, workshops and activities which take place on the Queen Mary University campuses or are hosted in our London communities, that are open to all. From getting hands-on with experiments, to finding out the most recent advances in science, humanities or medicine, our programmes have something for all ages and interests.'

ALERT  'Having welcomed thousands of people through our doors since 2011, we are sad to announce that the venue is now permanently closed. The move follows a decision by the London Borough of Newham to change the usage of the building. We are pleased to announce however that we will continue our work outside of a building, entering a period of reflection as we build on the strong links we have developed locally and in the wider cultural sector over many years to develop a full programme of activities.'
