Get ready for hybrid lectures

With everyone adapting to a world slowly returning to normal, Smethwick PS has restarted its in-person evenings at The Old School House on 26th August 2021. However, more than one year of Zoom lectures have made lectures accessible to visitors and members who were previously unable to attend in person, and we want to keep it that way!

We now have a high definition live stream lined up for you if you would like to attend lectures from home. Get started by registering a free account to access the streaming system.
