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.

“But words are things, and a small drop of ink

Falling like dew, upon a thought produces

That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.”
