About The Honourable Company of Gloucestershire

Arguably the Company’s greatest asset, its members are encouraged to take a full part in all the activities and opportunities provided. In addition to involvement in the five Interest Groups (Armed Forces, Arts and Heritage, Business, Community Support and Sport - see here) there are also opportunities to attend lectures by nationally known personalities. A programme of spring and autumn supper lectures addresses matters concerning the county, while the annual Gloucestershire Lecture usually covers an area of special interest within the county. We also arrange visits to, and social events at, a variety of locations across the county, many of them historically significant; these are all open to both members and their guests. In 2017 the Honourable Company will be celebrating it's 10th anniversary.
