What’s On at the AIIT

We hold regular public lectures at 5pm on Friday evenings during University term in addition to special events, conferences, workshops and occasional exhibitions. We also have an active Friends group. As part of the ‘family’, Friends are invited to special events, our traditional Summer Garden Party and other social functions, and are always welcome to visit the Trust.
