There is a programme of lectures with a variety of invited prominent speakers, held in the Lecture Hall of the Kensington Public Library. Admission is free to SPR members, with an admission fee for non-members. Over the years, the lectures have covered a wide spectrum of subjects, from crop circles (usually regarded as outside the Society's interests) and magic, through "core" areas of past-life memories or precognition, to discussions of neuro-chemical perspectives on altered states of consciousness, or media attitudes to the paranormal. Audio tapes of many SPR Lectures and Study Days are available from the SPR Office.

Lectures are held in the Lecture Hall of the Kensington Central Library, Campden Hill Road, London, W8 7RX. All Lectures begin at 7.00pm.

Cost: Members and Associates: Free / Non-Members: £5 / Students, Over 60s or Unwaged: £2. Tea, coffee and Biscuits will be available at £1 per person.

Study Days

The SPR holds occasional study days, where speakers give different perspectives on a specific theme and time is allocated for audience questions and discussion. Audio tapes of many SPR Lectures and Study Days are available from the SPR Office.

Study Days are mostly held at St Philip's Church, Earls Court Rd, London W8 6QH.

Occasionally, they are held at St Mary Abbots Centre, Vicarage Gate, Kensington Church Street, W8 4HN.


These full day meetings are generally between 10am and 5pm with breaks for tea/coffee in the morning and afternoon (refreshments included) and a longer break to allow for a local lunch (not included).

Cost: See individual events for details. There is usually a reduction for Students/Benefits/Over 60s. Advance booking is recommended, as space is limited.

The SPR welcomes suggestions for topics to be covered on future Study Days.

Annual Conference

The Society holds an annual conference at different venues around the UK, usually over an autumn weekend. You can read reports and abstracts from recent past events and conferences to get the flavour of these events.

The Society accepts no responsibility for opinions expressed or implied by speakers.
