John Lloyd Memorial Lecture

The Sir John Lloyd Memorial Lecture has been held in early spring each year since 1998. Admission is free, but a collection is made either for Society Funds, or for a charitable purpose connected with the Lecture. In recent years Theatr Brycheiniog has been the venue for the lecture and tickets are obtainable from the Box Office. Booking is essential, since the Lecture is often a sell-out. The lecture is normally published in Brycheiniog the following year.
