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

Coming soon

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

The Science Fair will happen on Saturday 12 March 11:00-16:00 at Leeds Museum, Millennium Square, Leeds LS2 8BH.

For lectures, we want to return to hosting more real life events but until further notice, we’re using Zoom for evening talks.
