Our objective is to promote & record the results of research in geosciences in Yorkshire. We achieve this mainly by hosting and promoting a series of indoor meetings & field trips throughout the course of the year, and publications by the Society, including the world-renowned Proceedings of the Yorkshire Geological Society which is published twice per year.'

'The Yorkshire Philosophical Society is a charitable learned society, founded in 1822 when “philosophical” had the same meaning as “scientific”. The Society’s primary aim is to promote public understanding and involvement in the academic disciplines of the natural and social sciences ... Our Lectures cover a wide range of subjects in the natural sciences, social sciences and archaeology, and take place in a friendly, welcoming environment with the opportunity to meet others with similar interests. Lectures are free and open to all.  Non-members are invited to make a donation to help cover costs.  Children are welcome provided they are accompanied by a responsible adult.'
