Over the first weekend in October the Royal Society will be hosting a Festival of Literature and Arts, titled One Culture. The Society's very first literature festival will celebrate 350 years of their science book collection, as they bring together some of the best authors, scientists, poets, historians and theatre practitioners to express, explore and enthuse about science and culture in all its forms.
The event will be hosted at the Royal Society's headquarters at 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, a Listed Grade I building. Burrell Foley Fischer have been the Society's architects for a number of refurbishment and reorganisation projects over the past decade. Most recently we completed the History of Science Centre, created in the space formally occupied by the Society's library.
The refurbishment provides study, exhibition and meeting facilities, in an atmosphere that reflects the Society's committment to excellence and inspiration. It equally provides for the safe keeping of the collections.
