Some good news !

The Arts Council has been distributing Emergency Grant funding on behalf of the National Lottery.
We are delighted to report that our bid to fund digitisation equipment has been successful. This will enable us to bring forward digitisation of our archive collections, keep our volunteers involved and enable work to continue remotely during the current emergency. 
Many thanks to the National Lottery and the members of the public who buy the lottery tickets.


Founded in 1710, the Society began as a group of gentlemen who came together to share and create knowledge.  Today, membership is open to anyone aged eighteen or over, irrespective of gender.

The Society boasts a long and interesting history. Our collections are incredibly varied – you can find anything from a hatpin to a range of firearms and cameras, beautiful glassware, an amazing selection of coins, medals and stamps, silverware and tableware – and a wonderful library.

The Society also arranges an important series of professional lectures on a wide range of subjects, which are open to the public. For further details, please click on the lectures tab.

If you have the chance to visit Spalding, please do contact us to arrange a tour of our wonderful building and see all the treasures within.
