In the spirit of the 19th Century scientists who founded the DEI we are adapting and innovating our programme so that we continue to flourish and connect with our members and supporters. Join us for a range of on-line activities, social media streaming, read-a-longs and virtual film club over our period of closure. Thank you for continuing to support us at this difficult time and we hope you are all staying well.
