What we do.

The Yorkshire Society is fundamentally a membership organisation for people who love Yorkshire, that both initiates and supports good causes for the benefit of Yorkshire and the people who come from it or live in it.

At the beating heart of the Society is the pride all Yorkshire people have in God’s own County. Its soul reflects their desire to ensure that Yorkshire’s unique character is not only preserved but promoted.
