Notice of change to services

17 Mar 2020 10:55 AM | Anonymous

To protect the health of our members, volunteers and staff, the Society has decided to make some changes in the way that we operate. In summary: Face to face events are suspended from today. The Archives are closed for research from today. The Library will be closed from Sunday. Please see below for details. If you have any questions, please email us at


All face to face events are suspended until the end of April. Webinars are not being cancelled, except if a presenter is unable to present due to their own circumstances. If that occurs, those who are already registered for that webinar will receive an email and a credit that can be transferred to another webinar of their choice.

Where possible, face to face events will be replaced by webinars on the same topic. Anyone who is already booked for a lecture will have their registration transferred to the webinar version of the event. This includes non-members, who do not normally have access to our webinars. Registrants will also receive a credit for another webinar, to be used before end July. Anyone who is already booked for a hands on workshop, or a lecture which is not replaced by a webinar, will receive further information about alternative arrangements and credits.

While we are happy to grant refunds for any cancelled events in principle, it is unlikely that this will be feasible once staff start working from home.

Webinar versions of current events will be placed on the events section of the SAG website and new bookings will be taken in the usual manner.

As more people begin to restrict themselves to their homes, we will also be adding additional webinars to help keep you occupied. Notification of new webinars will be placed on the events section of the SAG website, on our Facebook page, and in our SAG-e and Event Extra newsletters.

Library and Archives

The library will remain open for research until close of business this Saturday. The archives are closed from today.

If you have cold or flu-like symptoms, do not come into the library. We reserve the right to ask people to leave if they show such symptoms.
