Upcoming Lyceum programs will be presented in person at the Peterborough Unitarian Universalist Church and streamed live. After the presentation, a recording will be available. Attend online or view the recording by clicking on the speaker’s video link below.

We require that those attending in person wear face masks covering nose and mouth, and request that you be vaccinated.

If any circumstances prevent an in-person event, then this notification will be changed accordingly. We’ll also post a message on our Facebook page and send it to our email list. If you are not on our email list, you can join by supplying your address below.

We look forward to welcoming you to this summer’s Lyceums.

We are pleased to present the lineup for our 53rd season, featuring our usual wide range of subjects and speakers who aim to inform, engage, and inspire you. For more information about our speakers and their topics, please click on the speakers’ names where they appear below.

As was our custom before COVID hit, we will begin each gathering in the Church at 10:30 a.m. with live music from local artists. Our speaker will be introduced at 11 a.m., speak for about forty minutes, and then take questions from our in-church and more remote audiences. Those at the church can converse with the speaker and fellow audience members at a reception after the presentation.

If you are unable to attend from any distance when the talk is occurring, you’ll be able to access audio and video recordings on this website.
