Category Arts and Crafts

'Founded in 1955 with the aim of helping bring together the community of craft Weavers, Spinners and Dyers. Rather than set up another organisation for individual craft people we chose the path of becoming an Association of Guilds - an umbrella body to which regional or local Guilds are affiliated. The aim is to support those regional Guilds by operating at a larger scale with National Conferences, National Exhibitions, Competitions, publications and recognised qualifications certifying individuals' high level of achievement and competence in their chosen craft. We now have over 100 member Guilds representing over 5000 crafts-people.'

'The Society was formed in 1994 and covers the area of the Parish of Aston Cantlow, including the villages of Aston Cantlow and Wilmcote, together with the hamlets of Little Alne, Newnham and Shelfield. The main object is the promotion of interest in community, local and general history, through talks, meetings, outings, and by participating in history based events.'

'Hosts wide and varied events, intending to build upon a history of collaboration between academic researchers, professionals and society. Events range from weekly "topic-specific seminars", through to an annual conference, with the key aim to improve the delivery of justice through the analysis of language. Our events are free and open to the public unless specified otherwise.'

'Public engagement is a vital part of effective Knowledge Exchange, and we make sure to involve the public at every possible stage. We approach individuals and communities to encourage participation in planning new research, inviting them to contribute to science and even co-produce projects where possible. Sharing the impact that our research has on the everyday lives of people is a vital part of what makes research at Aston stand out from the crowd, and we do this through digital events, case studies, face-to-face talks, seminars, roadshows and much more.'

'There are many local astrology groups throughout the UK and Ireland, run by enthusiastic organisers who work hard to promote astrology. Most local groups host events and talks at very low cost in their local area, and some run classes – local groups are the lifeblood of astrology, and in many cases are the main means by which astrology enthusiasts in an area get to know each other, and hone their astrology skills ... The Astrological Association encourages and supports local groups, by offering free listings in its Events Calendar.'
