A BIT OF AN OVERVIEW

The Yorkshire Society is a membership organisation for people who love Yorkshire, and any individual or organisation can join for free, or pay a subscription for additional member benefits.

The Society unites a region divided into North, South, East and West under the one name they all use with pride – Yorkshire – and we exist to bring the people of Yorkshire together, wherever they are, because ordinary people, especially Yorkshire people, can do extraordinary things when they work together.

We also promote the Yorkshire brand, promoting and protecting the unique history and heritage that makes it unique and special. Our major events bring that history and heritage to life.

Non-political and charitable by nature the Society brings the people of Yorkshire together, supports its members, organises activities and initiatives for the greater-good, and helps individuals, communities and businesses throughout the region – the historic counties of Yorkshire’s three Ridings and York.

NOT FOR PROFIT, FOR YORKSHIRE

A not-for-profit organisation, The Yorkshire Society puts Yorkshire first, celebrating and promoting its economy, history, heritage, beauty and unique culture.

It is the established champion of ‘God’s own Country’ locally, nationally and internationally, working with affiliated organisations at home and abroad for the benefit of Yorkshire, not itself.
