Our programme of events include our regular hub meetings which take place across London, just find your nearest one and attend to find out more about the project. We also offer free talks and training sessions which take place at our base at the Institute of Historical Research, Senate House.

We will also promote events, volunteer opportunities and workshops on this page co-ordinated by the project with communities across London that might be of interest.

We are also organising a drop-in support session monthly at London Metropolitan Archives, which we will promote shortly.
