Click Members Page for our new page, accessible only to members. Minutes of the AGM and Committee meetings and possibly other documents of interest will be posted here.


Membership of the Society is now open for the year 2021/22. If you are able to pay more than the standard subscription, any additional amount paid will be treated as a donation, for which the Society will be most grateful.

Click Membership to find out more - save by taking out a 5-year subscription. There is a reduced rate for ATM, MA and U3A members and also those who live at a distance and do not wish to attend meetings. Institutional membership is also available, for example covering all teachers in a school or college.


The LivMS Bursary Fund (charity no. 1156909) offers bursaries - more information on the Joyce Hatton Memorial Bursaries page. The next deadline is 31 January 2022.

Programme for 2021-22

During 2021-22, there will be a mixture of online and face-to-face activities. Three popular lectures have been arranged for the autumn, including a Christmas lecture by Simon Singh (see below for all of these). There will be three further talks in the New Year (see below). All these events will require registration.

The Pop Maths Quiz will take place during March 2022. We plan to have a face-to-face version at LJMU in parallel with an online version similar to this year's.

Open Challenge will have the same format as this year's.
