Highgate’s Cultural Heartbeat
We offer new ideas, opportunities for debate and discussion, and good, lively company.
At the HLSI you will find a library for borrowing, research and browsing; a members’ room with all the major periodicals; stimulating weekly lectures; popular films; art exhibitions; science discussions; musical events and trips to the theatre and opera. Our archive has a wealth of documents and pictures of all kinds relating to Highgate past and present.

This House believes that selective state schools do more harm than good
Kiri Tunks, who will propose the motion, is a teacher in a Tower Hamlets comprehensive school and Junior Vice-President of the National Union of Teachers. Toby Young, who will oppose it, is an Associate Editor of The Spectator.
The debate is free and open to the public, but booking seats is advisable. The debate will start at 8pm: doors open at 7.30pm.
Since it was established in 1839, the HLSI has been an essential part of the life of Highgate.
We are in the heart of the village, overlooking Pond Square, in the building into which we moved in 1840.
We want to share with everyone our interest in life, the arts, literature and science.
Come and join us!
