Talks and Lectures at the Devon and Exeter Institution

About

'Hidden Nature' - a season of talks and conversazione filmed at the Institution, presented monthly via our website! The theme of our series this year is Hidden Nature.   We will explore some of the hidden aspects of Devon, our heritage building, library and Enlightenment collections in general, through the eyes of a diverse group of speakers.

Talks will be uploaded to our website on the last weekend of the month. We know members love the atmosphere of evening talks at the Institution but our cosy space does not allow for large scale events at present. We look forward to bringing back live events in a way which is comfortable and safe for all. In the meantime, please enjoy our Winter 20/Spring 21 programme:
