Romany Society Events 

The Society organises a series of events each year, with a residential weekend in the autumn, visiting sites associated with Romany’s life, or used by Romany in his books and broadcasts.

Until 2013 we also had open events at Romany’s Vardo, which stood in his memorial garden in Wilmslow.

The vardo has now been moved elsewhere (see the full story on the Vardo Appeal page) and so these open days have ceased.

IMPORTANT: The Romany Society is closing. The last Society event, marking the 80th anniversary of Romany’s death, was held in Wilmslow in November 2023.  The last Romany Society Magazine will be circulated in January 2024. The website will continue to exist until a decision is made on how best to continue online information.

Position Statement: The Romany Society, as at 12 July 2023.

An Annual General Meeting on 13 May 2023 resulted in a formal request by members for an Extraordinary General Meeting to  be held to discuss whether the Romany Society should be wound up due to the inability to secure a Chairman or a Secretary and following other resignations from the Executive Committee.

The EGM on 17 June 2023 resulted in a vote to wind-up the Society’s affairs. For more details visit our News page.

Extraordinary General Meeting on 17th June 2023

Following our recent AGM on 13th May in Wilmslow an EGM has been called for and will be held at 10.30 am on Saturday 17th June in Room B of the United Reform Church, Chapel Lane, Wilmslow, SK9 1PR. This is an important meeting to ratify a resolution to dissolve the Society in line with its constitution. This follows the failure to elect new officers at the AGM.

If you cannot attend in person attendance via Zoom is possible – please contact Stuart Redgard for details: stuart.redgard@mac.com.  Apologies or comments can be sent to Derrick Murdie: mrdi@talktalk.net
