Public Meetings

Our 2017 programme of meetings

Wednesday 20 September, Group of Four

This rather cryptically named group consists of four upright, public spirited burgesses of the Royal Borough who have made it their business to try to get some projects off the ground which would improve the Royal Borough but which need the combined efforts of more than one organisation to achieve success. The delightful story board explaining the history of the market-place and Charter Quay was the result of one such effort.

John McCarthy, John Pink, Brian Godding and Michael Davison will tell us more on the evening.

Wednesday 20 October, Kingston Society Townscape Awards

Every other year the Society presents Townscape Awards recognising building developments which in the Society's view have done the most to enhance the environment in the Royal Borough.

The awards will be presented at this meeting and the people behind each scheme will say a few words about them.

Coming to our public meetings

Unless otherwise noted, all our meetings are held in the Judge Lecture Theatre, Tiffin School, Kingston upon Thames KT2 6RL. Click here to see a map of the area.

Access is from the London Road entrance where there is free parking available, subject to other events happening at the school. There are bus stops outside and opposite the school entrance, and the main bus and railway stations are within short walking distance. While there are building works on the left of the carpark, entry is behind the carpark, down the path and turn left behind the metal staircase. The Judge Lecture Theatre is at the far end of the corridor.

Meetings begin promptly at 7:30pm. Doors are open at 7:00.

Free admission for members of the Society. Members of the public are very welcome to attend and are asked to pay £2 toward our costs, alternatively they can join the Society on the night for just £10.

Visits

The Society organises occasional visits to demonstrate the good and the bad of architecture and design.
