London’s ancient provider of free lectures and talks, Gresham College has adapted to the lockdown and is keeping up the schedule, with online video lectures.

It hasn’t been a huge move for them as they already live-streamed their lectures, but the hardware was set up to do that from their halls in Holborn or the lecture hall in the Museum of London.

In lockdown times, the videos are streamed from the living rooms of the talkers from around London. To watch the live lectures, just go to the Gresham College website and watch online, no registration is needed.

The lectures typically last around an hour.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.
