The Lavenham Society was established in the mid-1990s. Its aims are to:

• Emphasis and promote the largely unspoiled environment of Lavenham with its long history
• Encourage and support good, relevant and sympathetic standards of planning and architecture in all renovation and development
• Work with local government at parish, district and county level and with other groups to inform and promote the views of the Society

The Society organises regular talks from interesting speakers at Lavenham Guildhall and arranges guided tours to local places of interest. To view this year’s events,  see the Lavenham Society 2018 Newsletter.
