South West Local Centre

The Royal Meteorological Society is delighted to collaborate with Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution (BRLSI) to host the South West Local Centre of the Royal Meteorological Society.

BRLSI was founded in 1824 - a charitable organisation with educational and cultural aims, it offers a programme of over 100 lectures each year and free exhibitions drawing on its historic collections.

The Society and BRLSI aim to co-host two - three lectures per year, some in conjunction with other BRLSI Groups, notably science but this may increase in future years. The centre's meteorology lectures will aim at an informed general public, but will have at least one niche lecture per year explaining cutting-edge technical research in this fascinating subject.

Meeting Charges | There will be a small charge to attend lectures in order to cover our costs payable at the venue: 

  • Visitors - £5 per lecture 
  • Members of BRLSI, RGS and RMetSoc - £2 per lecture.

Tea and coffee is at at 7pm before lectures, with a voluntary contribution basket. Lectures start at 7.30pm prompt, and end by 8.30pm, with a customary questions time till 8.45pm.
