The LSE events leaflet is the public events listing for the London School of Economics and Political Science.

A full colour, 40 page booklet, it is published three times a year (September, January and April) by the Communications Division. Around 38,000 copies of the booklet are produced each term, of which 7,500 are mailed direct to those people on our events programme mailing list. Another 14,000 are distributed all over the capital via London Calling to cultural venues, bars, cafes restaurants, libraries, higher education centres, think tanks, and city institutions, where they have a 94 per cent pick up rate. The remaining 16,500 are distributed on the LSE campus and read by LSE students and staff, as well as visitors to LSE. Those 7,500 on the events mailing list include LSE governors and honorary fellows, LSE alumni, staff from government departments, foreign embassies, non governmental organisations, and businesses as well as members of the general public. All of those on the mailing list have requested to receive the programme.

LSE is the world's leading institution for the teaching and research of the social sciences. LSE has over 8,000 students from more than 150 different countries. LSE alumni and former staff include 16 Nobel Prize winners in Economics, Peace or Literature, around 28 past or present heads of state and 60 UK MPs or members of the House of Lords. It is also posted online as a pdf.
