Who We Are

what is the stratford society?

Our Aim

The Stratford Society aims to protect the heritage of our historic market town and to maintain or improve the quality of life for its residents and visitors. Founded in 1966, it offers non-political, professional expertise on the town's buildings and their surroundings. We work with councils and other organisations locally and nationally and we promote high quality design to maintain the character of this world famous and much visited town. We also collaborate with national heritage organisations such as Historic England in projects to research the town's history.

The Society is a membership organisation and is run by a committee of volunteers. The Society is registered as a Charity, and the majority of the committee members are also Trustees.
