Cirencester Science and Technology Society

This lively Society welcomes anyone who is interested in all branches of science and technology and their impact on our society. Although many of its members are engineers and scientists from a wide variety of disciplines, others are not. They live in a wide area around Cirencester.

The Society meets once a month throughout the year, except in July and August, at the Royal Agricultural College for lectures by the top people in their fields. Recent lecturers have included the past President of the Royal Society and the Directors of the Royal Institution and British Museum.

The lectures do not assume a detailed knowledge of science and are deliberately pitched at a level that everyone can follow, irrespective of their background.


Visitors are always very welcome. In addition, visits are arranged to specialised collections, advanced engineering facilities or centres where scientific and technological research and development are carried out. Recent visits have included the Diamond Synchroton at Didcot, the University Botanic Garden in Oxford, and the Rolls Royce Aero Museum at Filton.
