Organised by volunteers
Thanks to our member-volunteers, SPAB has a number of thriving Regional Groups who organise many local SPAB-related events. They always welcome new people keen to get involved or suggest ideas for activities. Events range from the technical, such as lime days, to the more aesthetic, e.g. a small concert in an historic building. On the whole they constitute visits to private buildings not normally open to the public, and a chance to speak to local historians and experts.
The Regional Groups started in 1994 and the number has grown each year
until now we have 16: SPAB in the North (Cumbria, Durham and Northumberland);
Yorkshire, South Lancashire & Cheshire; Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire; Fenland
and Wash; Suffolk; Essex; North Wales; the Marches; Somerset; Devon;
Gloucestershire; Sussex; Kent and Surrey; Bucks, Berks and Oxon; Dorset, and
London. There is also SPAB in
If you join the SPAB you will receive contact details and activities of the local group in your area. All members of SPAB are welcome at any events organised by any group.
