Welcome to the Liverpool Mathematical Society


The programme of lectures for the year 2023-24 has now concluded. The 2024-25 programme will be publicised in due course.

The Open Challenge virtual prize evening took place on Thursday 9th May. The Pop Maths Quiz took place on Saturday 2nd March; further details here.

Bursaries from the LivMS Bursary Fund (charity no. 1156909) are available to the value of 50 to 300 (in exceptional cases, up to 500). The next deadline for applications is 31st July 2024. More information is available on the Joyce Hatton Memorial Bursaries page.


A programme of lectures for 2024-25 is being arranged.

Planning is in hand for the 2025 Pop Maths Quiz. It is expected that Open Challenge 2025 will take place under similar conditions to the 2024 edition.


The Society has received the second instalment of 2100 of our 3-year grant; it will again be sufficient to fund Open Challenge and our lecture programme, including the Christmas Lecture.

The grant is from the Company of Actuaries Charitable Trust.
