Programme of Events for 2017-18

The Programme of Events for 2017-18 is listed in calendar form via the diary link.  In the diary there are details of the YAHS programme, which mainly comprises the individual sections' programmes, together with events organised by affiliated societies. The list given here may vary from the printed programme as it is updated as changes are notified to us.'

Details of Society and Section abbreviations and who to contact for further information are here. The group initials are also clarified, along with contact details for the secretary/organiser for the Group. The area codes in the diary under venue refer to the four county subdivisions of Yorkshire - East Riding (ER), North Yorkshire (NY), South Yorkshire (SY) and West Yorkshire (WY), plus the City of York (Yk) and more particularly also to the specific venue for most of the Society's own meetings at Swarthmore (Sw) in Leeds.  These abbreviations are intended to help you identify meetings of interest in your area.

Please note that at this time almost all the YAHS lectures will be held at Swarthmore Education Centre (and any known exception is noted in the listing). Some small changes may be possible after January 2018, so please check this website in case of any alterations after that date.. Swarthmore Education Centre is located at 2-7 Woodhouse Square, Leeds, LS3 1AD.



In the interest of taking the Society out & around the county, we continue to arrange joint events with our Affiliated Societies & other groups with similar interests. Please feel free to contact the Hon. Gen. Secretary, via Claremont or email , if your group is interested in joining with the YAHS to arrange such a meeting.


Our web site is being updated frequently, so we would encourage you to check in on a regular basis for news & new items. We have a news page where we can publicise events which happen between mailings that you might be interested in. If there are other events which you feel would be of general interest to our members, please feel free to contact YAHS Secretary with details. We also have a news alert mailing list which you can sign up to by contacting the Hon. Gen. Secretary at the above email address. This is used to keep members informed of a variety of events & happenings across the county, & in some cases the country, which may be of interest between mailings.
