Events Programme 2022
We're planning a typical range of interesting and challenging topics from speakers who are leaders in their field. The Science Fair will come up in March. We're still considering returning to real life events but it's possible that in early 2022 it will still look more sensible to remain on Zoom.
An intriguing connection between LPLS and the Red Planet…???

The Society makes grants both to individuals and to organisations in support of cultural and scientific activities which increase innovation, outreach and diversity in Leeds and its immediate area. It also supports local museums and galleries and publications relating to the city.
Since 1819, the Phil & Lit has been inviting the people of Leeds to hear from knowledgeable and entertaining speakers. Many are leaders in their field of science, arts or current affairs. We also hold an annual Science Fair and organise occasional visits. Becoming a member means that you’ll receive invitations to all these activities. In future, we plan to have a mix of real and virtual events.
