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.
