This affiliated branch was formed through a partnership with the Yorkshire Philosophical Society (YPS). The partnership continues as a historic link, as the British Science Association was founded under the auspices of the YPS in 1831 and had its first annual meeting (now the British Science Festival) at the Yorkshire Museum, home of the YPS. The Society organises an annual programme of varied lectures and other events, and raises funds for scientific projects and awards in the area. The YPS also run Café Scientifique in the basement of the City Screen cinema in York. Please visit the Yorkshire Philosophical Society’s website for full programme details.
