ORDINARY PEOPLE DOING
EXTRAORDINARY THINGS

trumpet_blue

Because The Yorkshire Society is a membership organisation – for people who love Yorkshire – we like to bring the people of Yorkshire together, figuratively and literally.

Figuratively, by giving our members and the people of Yorkshire a collective voice. Literally, by creating occasions and events that encourage our members, and the people of Yorkshire, to get together for business and pleasure.

WAVING THE YORKSHIRE FLAG
AND BLOWING YORKSHIRE’S TRUMPET

As we all know Yorkshire has a lot to shout about, and with characteristic pride, we like to make sure it’s shouted loud and clear.

We add to that noise by organising marquee events and initiatives worthy of the Yorkshire name and big enough to represent or benefit the whole region.
