All Georgian Group members aged 35 and under are entitled to discounted membership (an annual subscription of £25 rather than £40) and automatic membership of the Young Georgians. Since its creation in 1937, the Georgian Group has always had an active contingent of youthful members and all students, young professionals or indeed anyone at all with a passing interest in Georgian architecture is encouraged to join the gang.
In addition to all the normal membership benefits, we run our own programme of events with a more informal atmosphere. Our lecture series provides an exciting platform for up and coming research (any Young Georgians are welcome to put forward their own), alongside established authorities on the eighteenth century. Our (impeccably managed) trips offer you the opportunity to visit important architectural edifices otherwise closed to the public or an action packed weekend in the country. There will of course be a number of drinks parties and pub gatherings throughout the year as a chance to chat about our shared interests.
Most of our organizing will inevitably take place on Facebook, so please join the group once you are a member.
Robbie, Amy and Alex make up the current Young Georgian committee - get in touch at YG@georgiangroup.org.uk with any questions or ideas for events and they will gladly respond. (Any queries to do with your existing membership should be made to firstname.lastname@example.org).
