Ancient World Breakfast Club

The Godolphin and Latymer Ancient World Breakfast Club (AWBC) was established in 2005 as a weekly lecture series to promote the study of the ancient world among members of the wider community. Since that time, interest has grown considerably – membership is currently nearly 200 people – and the club has developed a fine reputation for attracting distinguished speakers on many and varied topics to do with the ancient world. Undaunted by the early hour – or perhaps lured by the promise of yoghurt and muesli, croissants and coffee – enthusiasts of all ages join us at 7.30am for an 8.00am start, each Friday of term for their weekly dose of intellectual edification. No prior knowledge of greek, latin, or the classical world is required.

Since the start of the Summer Term 2020, the AWBC has moved online, with a weekly podcast being published during the school term. This has allowed us to introduce speakers on a world-wide basis, although we do of course hope to be able to host the AWBC back on site again at some point in 2021. For further information about the podcasts, and to request access, please email: office@godolphinandlatymer.com
