On 11 March 2019, Gresham College in London have a lecture called Gresham’s Bequest to Samuel Pepys and John Evelyn. From the website:

The valuable bequest of Sir Thomas Gresham to the development of scientific interest in seventeenth-century England can be traced through the testimony of Samuel Pepys and John Evelyn - not only great diarists but also ‘particular friends’.

No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture

The lecture will be given by Margaret Willes who recently wrote a book about Pepys and Evelyn.

While on the site I noticed that Gresham College have an archive of previous lectures available to be watched as video. Some that might be of interest:

Thanks to San Diego Sarah for noticing the Pepys and Evelyn lecture.
