Durham hosts two major lecture series of interest to astronomers:
- The Grubb Parsons Lecture
Given annually by a distinguished astronomer from outside the Department, it is named in honour of the contributions made by the Newcastle optical and engineering company Grubb Parsons Ltd to the development of astronomical instrumentation in the UK.
- The Temple Chevallier Lecture
The Temple Chevallier lecture series honours the achievements of Temple Chevallier (1794-1873), Durham's first (and only) Professor of Mathematics and Astronomy. The bi-annual lectures reflect his interests, encompassing, in turn, topics in astronomy, engineering, mathematics and theology.
- The student run Durham University Astronomical Society has a programme of fortnightly talks during term, usually held at lunchtimes in the Bransden Room.
