A Lecture evening of Gresham College @ the Old Library of Guildhall; 9-1-2020
The reason I ended up in the financial district of London was to attend a lecture at the beautiful old library of Guildhall.The founder of Gresham College (1597) , Sir Thomas Gresham left money in his will to establish a College to bring the “new learning” to the public through lectures that would be free for all to attend. It is a fantastic opportunity for everyone to be able to attend lectures on wide range of topics ( from art, music, history, literature, to law, business, medicine, environment, astronomy….) delivered by some of the world’s leading authorities in their respective fields. Amazing that such a tradition is kept up for over 400 years! There are quite many lectures each month and are organised in several locations around the City of London.
