About Us

The Rotunda Geology Group is an active organisation closely associated with the Rotunda Museum in promoting the interests of geology in north east Yorkshire. 

Our members include amateurs, academics and professionals, but anyone with an interest in geology, whatever their age and background, is welcome to join. Non-members are welcome to attend our talks at a charge of £3-00 per person, per talk.

During the summer (June to September inclusive), we have monthly field visits, usually on a Saturday, to local sites of interest.

Refer to our programme to see the range of illustrated talks given by geologists, both from universities and industry, meeting at 7:30 pm on the first Thursday of each month from February to May and from October to December.

We meet at The Conference Room, Woodend, The Crescent, Scarborough, YO11 2PW. The Woodend building is at the end of The Crescent in central Scarborough. The Conference Room is entered directly from a door on the right hand side of the building. Signage will be present to guide you.

The February Meeting is our combined AGM and Open Evening, when we invite members to bring along specimens and other items of interest. We also hold occasional informal seminars on basic geological concepts at the request of some of our amateur members.

We are bound by a written constitution and hold our Annual General Meeting in February. We publish the RGG Record and Magazine annually; from which a selection of articles are available on this site.
