The Society was originally formed in 1946, after Romany’s death, and continued until 1965. It was re-founded in 1996, with Mr Terry Waite as Patron and Mrs Romany Watt (Romany’s daughter) as President. It was created to promote and encourage the study and appreciation of Romany, his life and works and produced newsletters, an annual magazine and events. There were over 300 members of all ages. The Society closed in 2023.

IMPORTANT 2023: The Romany Society has closed. The last Society event, marking the 80th anniversary of Romany’s death, was held in Wilmslow in November 2023. 

The last Romany Society Magazine was circulated in February/March 2024.

The website will continue to exist until a decision is made on how best to continue online information.
