Promoting Local Heritage, Civic Pride, Science and Literature in the City of Wolverhampton


Who we are

The aims of the Wolverhampton Society are to promote local heritage, civic pride, science and literature in the city.

It was formed in 2020 when the oldest Society in Wolverhampton, the Literary and Scientific Society, merged with the Wolverhampton Civic and Historical Society which emerged from the original Civic Society founded in 1960.
