Apply to Host a Lecture

The Montgomery Trust gives you the opportunity to book a renowned lecturer for your special event at no cost to you. The Trust pays the lecturer’s fees and travel costs.

With over 30 lecturers and nearly 100 lecture topics available, we are confident you will find the perfect combination for your audience.

Hosting a lecture is very exciting! It engages your community, starts conversations, presents different opinions and provides a space for discussion.

Previous hosts have included cathedrals and churches, community and special-interest groups, chaplaincies, universities and schools.

The event you are planning will need to fulfil the purposes of the Montgomery Trust. You will be required to describe the nature of the meeting you are planning, explaining how this fulfils the purposes of the trust on the online booking form.

We also ask you to guarantee a minimum of 30 people in your audience. To help achieve this, ask people to book, even though there is no charge – people are far more likely to attend if they’ve booked! Make sure you tell them how to book (a phone call or email, and to whom?)

This enables you to plan your seating and any refreshments you might like to provide.

Take a look through our lecturer profiles pages to find the theme/lecture title/speaker that best fits your event and the purposes of the Montgomery Trust.
