About Paisley Philosophical Institution Talks

For over 200 years Paisley Philosophical Institution has attracted renowned speakers on a diverse range of subjects covering every aspect of life, art, history, travel and music.

Talks usually last no more than 45 minutes followed by adequate time for questions from the audience

Meetings are held in an informal, friendly atmosphere and are open to all members of the public. Non-members can attend initially on a "pay as you go basis".

Today the Institution continues to be a Club to delight, inform, amuse in addition to providing a venue for those who are merely curious about life in general.

All meetings will take place in the University of the West of Scotland, High Street, Paisley. Meetings start at 7.30 pm.
Membership for the season is £15.00, £10.00 for students. We invite guests to come along to individual meetings, and request that a donation be made - suggested amount £3.00.
