 The meeting at the Geological Society will finish at 16:00.
At 18:00 the celebration moves to Imperial.  There will be a talk by me about the history of solar terrestrial physics and Jim's part in the controversies and their resolution in Physics Lecture Theatre 1, Imperial College, Prince Consort Road, London SW7 2BZ.  This location is a short bus, taxi or tube ride from Piccadilly.
The lecture will be followed by an early evening social event in the Physics Department Common Room.
On the following day from 10:30-15:30 there will be a specialist RAS meeting again at the Geological Society - details can be found from the following link: http://www.ras.org.uk/events-and-meetings.
From 16:00-18:00 there will be an ordinary meeting of the Royal Astronomical Society.  During this session Chris Russell from UCLA, someone closely associated with Jim Dungey will deliver a talk about the Dawn Asteroid Orbiter Space Mission of which he is PI. The session will close with the first Royal Astronomical Society James Dungey lecture which will be given by Peter Cargill of Imperial/St Andrews.
As is usual, attendees at the Royal Astronomical Society Ordinary Meeting are welcome to attend drinks afterwards (at a small cost) in the Society's appartments (adjacent to the Geological Society).  
I am happy to report that Jim expects to be present throughout the proceedings.
