About Us

Gresham College has been providing free public lectures since 1597 when Sir Thomas Gresham's vision of a  college to bring the ‘new learning’ to Londoners was realised. Today we carry on Sir Thomas's vision, bringing some of the world's most brilliant minds to speak in fields ranging across the arts and sciences.
