Society Day and AGM in Greenwich

Friday 27th Sep - 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Our Society AGM Day this year will be in Greenwich, London, on 27th September 2019.  In the morning we are guests of the Palestine Exploration Fund as we view their varied collection of Lawrence memorabilia.  After a buffet lunch together (cost included), we will share Society news and plans in our Annual General Meeting.

We invite you to join us for what promises to be a most enjoyable and interesting day.  The PEF was founded in 1865 and is the oldest organisation in the world created specifically for the study of the Old Levant. The PEF recently moved to a lovely waterfront location on the Thames and they now have much more space to view their important collections as well as an impressive reference library, including those relating to Lawrence.  They offer membership and host regular lectures and events in London and beyond; explore their website at www.pef.org.uk. PEF, 5-6 Dreadnought Walk, Greenwich, London SE10 9FP.

Greenwich, is steeped in history and famous as the home of the 19th century ship Cutty Sark, National Maritime Museum, Old Royal Naval College and the Royal Observatory.  Members may wish to make a weekend visit as there is so much to see and do.
