Welcome to the Byron Society
The Byron Society celebrates the life and works of Lord George Gordon Byron (1788-1824), a poet, traveller and revolutionary.
Based in London, but hosting events around the UK and abroad, the Byron Society brings together all those interested in the famous Romantic poet Lord Byron, whose controversial works and astonishing life have entranced readers for more than 200 years.
Established in the nineteenth century the Society was re-founded in London in 1971 to promote a wider and deeper knowledge of Byron’s life, works and circle. We offer you the chance to discover more about Byron, and to share your interest through talks, lectures, poetry readings, book launches, dinners, trips and other events.
We are a non-profit organisation and a registered charity.

Sadly all our events are currently postponed due to Covid-19, however we are hoping to resume in the Autumn. Do get in touch if you have any questions or would like to propose an event, or if you would like to contribute a blog piece, or are publishing a book related to Byron and the Romantics.
“But words are things, and a small drop of ink
Falling like dew, upon a thought produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.”
