Leicester Literary and Philosophical Society - Founded 1835


We stage fortnightly public talks on a wide range of topics, every other Monday throughout Winter and Spring.

Alongside the main Society, there are Sections specialising in Natural History and Geology.

The Society has a venerable history stretching back to the early 19th Century.

We work with Leicester City Council, Leicester New Walk Museum, the University of Leicester and De Montfort University to ensure the highest possible quality of speakers, who cover relevant topics of general and academic interest.

We exist to advance education in Literature, Science and Art for the benefit of all people. Membership is open to anybody.
