This event is organised by the London Natural History Society and the FSC BioLinks project.

The event comprises of 15 talks of 15 minutes each, on a wide range of natural history topics spanning botany, birds, butterflies, mammals, books, reserve management, wildlife recording, top wildlife sites and taxonomy. The majority of talks are UK or London-centric, with a few of the talks focused on foreign regions. The speakers are drawn from a wide range of backgrounds and many represent British institutions and conservation charities which are world-leaders in research and conservation.
This not a scientific conference but the depth and content is aimed at adults with a serious interest in natural history. The talks are broken into 5 panels with 15 minute intervals and a 1 hour lunch break to give time for attendees to network. No food and drink is provided, but there are many food options locally. See the accompanying slides for more information.

Swedenborg House is home to Swedenborg Hall: a stunning neoclassical lecture theatre. Built around 1760, Swedenborg House was originally a dwelling house. The freehold was acquired by the Swedenborg Society in 1924. It is a four-storey Grade II-listed building in the heart of Bloomsbury, central London, just a short walk from the British Museum and the London Review Bookshop. There are many bus routes, trains and tube stations close to it. There are several fast food outlets for food and drink and a number of lovely London garden squares are within walking distance.
