Friends of Keele events

We arrange a programme of social events throughout the year, many of which are exclusively for Friends of Keele and their guests. These occasions are centred on Keele and often involve high profile national speakers and performers.

As well as larger public lectures, the Friends of Keele have also launched a Mini Lecture Series held in the private Raven Mason Suite within Keele Hall.

The Friends' social programme also includes a number of cultural events as well as the opportunity to learn more about developments within teaching and research at Keele University.

P‌lease note that attendance at all events must be booked in advance either one of the following methods:

  • online via the "Book Event" button available in each of the events listed below

  • writing to Friends of Keele (c/o Directorate of Research, Innovation & Engagement), IC2, Keele University, Keele, Staffordshire ST5 5NH

All places are booked on a first-come, first-served basis, and all Guests must be accompanied by a Friends of Keele Member.
