Greetings Medievalists!

The LUU Medieval Society was formed in order to promote a thriving community of medievalists in the University and City of Leeds, as such, we warmly encourage anyone with an interest in the Middle Ages to join. 

The University of Leeds, the City of Leeds and indeed the whole of Yorkshire is an extremely fertile ground for the study of the Middle Ages; as such, it can be hard to keep track of everything that is going on. As a Society we aim to provide regular newsletters in order to keep you updated and to add to the events, excursions and lectures ourselves. 

This year we've already traveled up to Durham in order to see the Lindisfarne Gospels Exhibition, taken a tour of the Royal Armouries and provided an exhibition of some of the beautiful illuminated manuscripts in the Brotherton Library's Special Collections. A trip to visit Wearmouth, Jarrow and Bede's World is currently being planned for the New Year, but in the meantime we have more than enough regular events (including a Medieval Film Club, Pub Night and Coffee Morning) to keep you happy!

Membership costs £5. All members receive subsidised tickets to excursions and events.

There are many ways to get in contact with us, you can like us on Facebook (, follow us on Twitter (@luumedievalsoc) or simply email us (

As a new society we are still developing and expanding; if you have any comments, suggestions or want to be a part of the committee please do get in contact.

  • Social Guidelines

    Should you be running a social, check out the guidelines for events you run.

  • The Churches Conservation Trust

    The Churches Conservation Trust is the national charity protecting historic churches which are no longer needed for regular worship, and are therefore at risk. Our unique collection of over 340 English parish churches includes irreplaceable examples of architecture, archaeology and art from 1,000 years of history. With the help and support of volunteers, visitors, and local communities, we carry out an extensive conservation programme and the churches are kept open and in use.
