ORDINARY PEOPLE DOING
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.
THE YORKSHIRE FESTIVAL
A celebration of Yorkshireness that brings together produce, entertainment, heritage and culture for the people of Yorkshire to enjoy.
The official civic celebration on August 1st of Yorkshire’s ‘national’ day provides a suitable centrepiece for the region’s celebrations.
Yorkshire’s most prestigious awards celebrating individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the life and work of our region.
Voluntary and not-for-profit organisations with a shared commitment to protect and preserve Yorkshire’s heritage, in all its forms.
A major annual business event for the post Brexit world. Starting in 2022 it will provide an international showcase for Yorkshire business.
To mark the lives of exceptional individuals who have significantly contributed to our region, and for businesses achieving important milestones.
SOMETHING ELSE WE DO
The Yorkshire Society always tries to help its charity members, good causes brought to our attention and our own community initiatives, by raising the money they need to succeed.
