Coronavirus update: event cancellations


Last reviewed: 1st April 2020


The RSA is following the advice from Public Health England, while taking active steps to minimise the impact of the virus on staff, Fellows and members of the public. Therefore:

  • Public, Fellowship and Rawthmells events are being held online where possible or otherwise cancelled.
  • RSA House is now closed until the end of May 2020.
  • RSA staff are working remotely where possible and are still contactable.

We will update this page regularly as the situation develops and our programme of activities returns to normal.
