PHILAS House re-opened from Saturday 27 June

Philas President, Lionel Savins, advises:

  Normal operations in PHILAS House have now resumed, including regular meetings of the clubs that usually meet there. Strict observance of government regulations concerning COVID-19 must be followed as they apply at the dates of the meetings.


  PHILAS House now has a state-of-the-art security system with multiple cameras on every floor and covering the entrance areas.  The views from the cameras can be monitored in real time and can be viewed as recordings for at least a month afterwards.  It is also possible to get close-ups of anything recorded by the cameras.

  This increased security will be a great help during the auctions and on auction viewing days.
