Public Programs

Programs are held on the third Monday of each month

Programs are held at Stainton Hall auditorium at the Pennington School on the 3rd Monday of each month, from September to May. Time: Refreshments served at 7:30 pm; program begins at 8:00 pm. We strive to feature engaging speakers and interesting topics for our lecture series. If you have any recommendations for topics or speakers for one of these programs, please visit our contact page and let us know. All our programs are free and don’t require advance registration!

Stainton Hall, Pennington School
112 West Delaware Avenue
Pennington, New Jersey 08534

FYI:  There is a new entrance to The Pennington School campus off W. Delaware Ave just a few feet to the west of the old one.  It leads to a new parking lot immediately behind Stainton Hall.  For now, one can use both entrances, but parking at the new one is less crowded and conveniently close to the rear entrance near the south side of the building.
