  • Social innovation

This is an invitation to connect with curiosity to other local people who you might not get to meet in your day job, or if you are involved in single interest or professional groups.

Hosted by the RSA – specialists in multi-disciplinary connections – but open to all, this session is a friendly opportunity to share your interests, connect with others and find the fascinating in the people of our local area.

It doesn’t all happen in London or in siloes and, in this area, we’re lucky to have a huge range of interesting people doing amazing things, things that you won’t discover from sharing the supermarket queue with them. Come and share a drink and a chat, and hear ten four-minute ‘lightning talks’ – conversation starters – from Fellows in your area.

We’ve got an exciting range of talks lined up for you from local Fellows:

  • Cllr Sandy Walkington FRSA- Liberty, Equality, Fraternity
  • Natalie Shenker FRSA - Human milk banking: a missing jigsaw piece in UK public health
  • Emma Brining FRSA - Meeting the educational needs of the most able children in the maintained sector
  • Nicholas Garman FRSA - The life of a peripatetic music examiner
  • Vivien Glass FRSA - Driving sustainability in the jewellery industry.
  • Linda Chandler FRSA - Swapping commute for community
  • Dixon Jones FRSA - Using AI to analyse politicians’ tweets
  • David Jenkins FRSA - Performing arts inspiring the next generation
  • Judy Willits FRSA - Embedding mentally healthy movement every day for every child
  • (Lord) Tom McNally FRSA - Reforming the House of Lords.

We hope you can join us!

Taking part in RSA in-person events  

We've been looking forward to finally being able to meet together in person, but of course recognise it is important for us to stay cautious and make the environment safe for everyone.   

We aim to have assurances from all venues that they will have basic COVID-safety processes in place. 

We’re asking all attendees of events to be respectful of personal space, to be mindful of others’ preferences in regard to social distancing and to respect those that are wearing face coverings. 

To participate in the event, you will need to register for a ticket so we can make sure we have an up-to-date list of those who plan on attending. This is for capacity purposes.   

We request that all attendees evaluate their own health and that of those they’re in close contact with. We encourage all attendees that are sick or showing symptoms of illness to stay home and to cancel your Eventbrite ticket if you are no longer able to join the event.   

Given the ever-changing nature of the pandemic, please always check your latest national Government guidance in addition to following our baseline guidance enclosed here. If guidelines do change, the event may be cancelled at short notice. 

If you have any questions, or to let us know of any access requirements or reasonable adjustments you require, please email:
