There are genuine geological specimens and are not toys; they are not suitable for young children and should not be put in the mouth. Please wash your hands after handling geological specimens and before eating food. Click here for our Risk Assessment.

Winter lecture meetings usually start at 7-30 p.m. and are held in the Department of Geology, Cohen Building, University of Hull (unless otherwise stated). Non-members are welcome to attend but please arrive before the start of the meeting. If you arrive late the building may be locked for security reasons and you will not be able to get in. If we are in the ground floor lecture theatre or laboratory you can knock on the window and we will let you in.

There is no charge for non-members attending our meetings (unless otherwise stated), but you are welcome to make a donation to Society funds.

The Club Nights are open to members of the Society, University Staff and Students and interested members of the public. At the end of each meeting we will choose the topic or topics for the following meeting. Those attending are encouraged to bring some appropriate specimens, photographs, models or texts to contribute to the evening; though it is also OK to just join in the conversation. The meetings start promptly: if you arrive late the building will be locked for security reasons and you may not be able to get in.

Please contact the Society if you wish to come to a field meeting so that the leaders will know how many people to expect. The Society reserves the right to exclude people who are not wearing the necessary protective clothing/equipment.
