The Friday Lunch & Lecture Events have been running for more than 22 years. The Lectures are free to attend for IET members and non-members. All are welcome.

If attending lunch, arrive before 11.45 and sign-in at the Faraday Centre reception. From April 2019 it is expected to cost £18.35. For attending only the lecture, arrive before 13.45 and sign in for the event; this is separate to the IET Faraday Centre reception signing-in.
