Meet RPS staff
Members of RPS staff from various areas and departments will be at RPS House all day, to answer questions and discuss anything from charitable projects to Distinctions, membership and more.
There's no need to book for this, but if there is a specific department you are keen to talk to, you can find contact information on this page.
Participate in a free family-friendly cyanotype workshop
We will be hosting a free workshop encouraging families and children to explore the creation of cyanotypes, a fun and simple way to experiment with picture-making.
These workshops will be led by our Education team, and will be available to book in time slots on the day. Attendance is free - just ask a member of staff when you arrive.
