Welcome to the new online home for the Wolverhampton Literary and Scientific Society, known as “The Lit”.
We are an organisation that dates back to 1880 and we have had many a famous or noteworthy speaker through our doors. At our peak, we had around 650 members, including many notable names from Wolverhampton’s history.
We are a slumbering giant that reawakens from 2019!
First up will be a series on our storied history – including our connection to Dickens and Stan Laurel!
