The Society makes grants both to individuals and to organisations in support of cultural and scientific activities which increase innovation, outreach and diversity in Leeds and its immediate area. It also supports local museums and galleries and publications relating to the city.

About the Society

The Leeds Philosophical and Literary Society, founded in 1819, is a charity that promotes interest in science, literature and the arts – in the city of Leeds and beyond. We have meetings, lectures, entertainments, publications and visits.

Programme for 2022

We’re planning a typical range of interesting and challenging topics from speakers who are leaders in their field.

The Science Fair will come up in March.

We’re still considering returning to real life events but it’s possible that in early 2022 it will still look more sensible to remain on Zoom.
