Senior Fellows Forum events 

We’re delighted to announce our next Senior Fellows Forum event will be held on Wednesday 11 May 2022.

The Forum events have been delayed since 2020 due to the pandemic, but we’re excited to be hosting it at our offices at 63 Lincoln’s Inn Field this year.

This is an exciting opportunity to engage and network with your peers – and we have a packed programme for the day which includes a series of three short talks in the morning on topics ranging from 'Becket 850 years on' to 'Doctors in art, literature, film and television'.

In the afternoon, you will have the chance to either take a guided tour of London Tower Bridge or go on a walking tour of the healers and hoaxers of Harley Street.
