From the Members’ area
Members of the Quekett can access a private area of this website that contains material including reports of meetings, videos of lectures, galleries of microscope slides and photographs from our annual exhibition, auctions of microscopes, slides and accessories, the Club Shop, and a catalogue of the books in the library.
A few of these pages and one of the videos are reproduced in this open area of the website, to give you a taste of the extra material that is available only to members. We hope this will encourage you to join the Club!
You can see a selection of reports on recent Club events on the Meeting reports page.
You can see another selection of reports on events where the Club participated in order to promote microscopy to the public on the Outreach programme page.
Videos of lectures
For the last few years, we have been videoing our lectures, and Club members can borrow them on DVD or watch them in the Members’ Area of the website. You can watch one of the videos here:
