London Meetings

The Society aims to hold 5 meetings in London per annum. These meetings typically consist of a presentation from one of the members or an invited guest, followed by an opportunity to view and discuss swords and fittings from member’s collections. Meetings are held at:

The  Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, Charles Clore House, 17 Russell Square, London, WC1B 5DR.

They begin at 6.30pm and close between 8.30 and 9pm.

Regional Meetings

Alongside our regular London Meetings we organise several regional events throughout the country. Since their introduction these have proven increasingly popular and we try to hold 2-3 such meetings per annum. Typically a regional meeting is a full day event and will include a series of presentations, a display of swords, tosugu and armour and will often include a sales table.

Details of regional meetings will be sent to members via email and be posted on this site and our Facebook page.

Online Meetings

In 2020 The Society started to run a series of on line meetings using the zoom platform. These have proven extremely popular and as a result we are now intending to hold regular online meetings at approximately 6 week intervals.

Museum visits:

We are fortunate to have very good contact and relations with a number of museums throughout the country. As a result we have been able to organise a number of study events at various institutions. We aim to hold 2 such meetings each year when possible. These meetings offer an exceptional opportunity to study pieces not on public display.

Details of Museum visits will be sent to members via email and be posted on this site and our Facebook page.


Due to the current restrictions relating to the Covid-19 pandemic we have had to postpone our London and regional meetings and our planned Museum study days. As soon as we are able we will reschedule these events and look forward to resume a full and varied programme.
