Upcoming Meetings and Events
The Society holds regular talks and meetings in the UK and North America and arranges visits to places of interest connected with Beatrix Potter. Most of these events are free to Members; there is a charge for others. Guests/non-Members are very welcome at almost all events – a small guest fee is charged. Occasionally, priority is given to Society Members at ticketed events.
An annual Linder Memorial Lecture is given in London, to commemorate the contribution to Beatrix Potter studies and research made by Leslie Linder and his sister, Enid.
The Society also holds biennial International Conferences in the UK – and occasionally in the USA. The Conferences are often followed, or preceded, by a holiday tour to an area of the UK with Beatrix Potter interest.
