A collaborative meeting between the British Mathematical Colloquium (BMC) and the British Applied Mathematics Colloquium (BAMC) was held at the University of Cambridge from 30 March to 2 April 2015. The organisers of the joint BMC/BAMC Colloquium kindly allocated a day of the event (1 April) to celebrate the LMS 150th Anniversary. Two distinguished mathematicians agreed to speak on that day as part of the celebrations: Professors Robert Calderbank and Andrew Wiles. Additonally, a number of LMS sponsored Scheme 3 Research Groups held workshops on the day and a Society meeting was held, followed by a 150th Anniversary reception.

Other Plenary Speakers during the event included Yves Couder, Jacques Dumais, Phil Hall, Peter Kronheimer, Stanley Osher, Sylvia Serfaty and Wendelin Werner, while a Public Lecture sponsored by the IMA was also given jointly by Stephen Hawking and Michael Green at 7pm on Tuesday 31 March.
