Newcommen Society - Poking its nose into everything
24th January 2022 6:30 pm
From its foundation in 1754 the RSA has poked its nose into everything from the ‘polite arts’ to science and technology, with many other areas of interest in between. The Society encouraged inventions and developments through its ‘premium’ system which developed in the mid-19thcentury into a wide-ranging lecture programme. The RSA also led a number of campaigns, as well as laying the groundwork for the Great Exhibition of 1851.
