This year's annual meeting will be held at the Natural History Museum, London, with a day of talks on Saturday 26 November and access to the Diptera collection on Sunday 27 November. This event is free and open to non-members, all you need to do is turn up!
Please access the museum via the staff entrance on Exhibition Road and sign in as a visitor at the reception desk. From there you will be directed to the Neil Chalmers Suite (Saturday) or Angela Marmont Centre (Sunday).
There will be a prize for the best Diptera exhibit, so if you have something to display please bring it along on Saturday. Pemberley Books will also be in attendance.
