Annual General Meeting
The Association holds its Annual General Meeting in the Autumn of each year, usually in London, linked to a study day or conference.

Study Days and Other Meetings
Each year the Association holds two day meetings usually in Spring and Autumn, with a programme of papers from invited speakers on a topical theme.

Next Study Day
We have three meetings already planned for 2022, the United Nations International Year of Glass. For more details on the joint meeting with the V&A Museum on crystal glass please click on the 'Study Days and Other Meetings' tab at the top of this page and follow the link to the programme pdf. A meeting focusing on Late Bronze Age glass, linked to the anniversary of the opening of the tomb of Tutankhamun, will be held in Oxford on the 29th and 30th of April 2022. Details will also appear here as soon as they are finalised. Our meeting entitled ‘Glass in the North’ is also being planned for Spring/Summer 2022 and we will bring you details as soon as we receive them. For more information please email the Hon. Secretary of the AHG Sally Cottam on
