Open Lectures & TalksThe Section 'Affiliates' provides contact details for Groups and Affiliated Societies of the OSGB. In addition: 'We hold monthly meetings for those members who are able to come to London on a Saturday afternoon. Each meeting is different. There is usually an experienced speaker who may talk about travel, cultivation or any other subject related to orchids. Members bring their plants to display at the monthly table show which offers a chance to see a wide variety of orchids in flower. The plants are judged and awarded and there is a short discussion about their history, cultivation and merits ... Tea and coffee are available and members have a chance to chat with the each other and the guest speaker and ask the questions that have been bothering them for ages. "Why won’t my Phalaenopsis flower?" is the most common; no question is too silly to ask ...'

Open Lectures & Talks'Big Ideas is a series of events, mostly held in pubs in London ... Sessions generally start with a question. Someone who has some relevant expertise gives a very brief, informal talk. After that a discussion develops in a free and unstructured manner. It's not a lecture, and it's not a debate; it's a pub argument, but unlike any you've had before ... In case you were worried, Big Ideas isn't affiliated with any political, religious or other organisation, and we don't have any particular agenda ... Anyone is welcome to turn up.'

Open Lectures & Talks'With our extensive programme of events, The Japan Society provides many opportunities for Japanese and non-Japanese to meet and share ideas and new experiences. Naturally, there is plenty on offer for those wanting to extend their understanding of contemporary and traditional Japan, its culture, language and people. However, with a membership that is approximately 50% Japanese, we also have events which focus on aspects of British life and provide opportunities to get to know the UK better. The format of events is as varied as the content: lectures and seminars sit alongside gallery visits, film screenings, pub nights and formal dinners.' Arrangements vary: check details - including whether need to be a member of the Society to attend a specific event.
