York Georgian Society

York Georgian Society

Welcome

The York Georgian Society was founded in 1939 to promote the preservation and care of Georgian buildings in and around York, England, while fostering the study and appreciation of them. It is the second oldest society outside London devoted to the Georgian era. The Society’s remit extends beyond architecture and the crafts associated with building to include the arts, culture and society of the period from 1660, the year of George I’s birth, to 1837, the year of William IV’s death.

WE ARE PLEASED to announce the Society’s programme of lectures for 2018–19, starting on Saturday 13 October with Stephen Banfield’s intriguingly titled Consult Your GP! The General Practitioner of Music in Georgian England. Please visit the Lectures page for more information. Our venue has changed to the Friends Meeting House, Friargate, York YO1 9RL, which will enable us to offer refreshments after each talk.

Members will receive the usual printed programme card in the summer.
