HOW TO JOIN THE HUDDERSFIELD CIVIC SOCIETY
Huddersfield Civic Society was created in 1964 with the aim of encouraging high standards of architecture and town planning.
We strive to stimulate public interest and pride in caring for the town, its buildings and culture, the improvement of its environment, infrastructure and amenities, and the promotion of a vibrant and attractive place to live and work. We welcome individual and corporate members. The annual subscription fee for individuals is £12.50. Corporate members pay £30.

If you are passionate about the history and future of our town and wish to be part of a charitable body that puts civic pride at its heart, please join us. We rely on members for most of our income, so the financial support we receive from annual subscriptions is important.
As a member, you can enjoy our events and publications or get more involved by joining the committee. Members are elected at our March AGM. You can also support our campaigns to improve the town or help with initiatives such as Civic Week and Heritage Open Days.
