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 and anyone with an interest in geology, whatever their age and background, is welcome to join.  An annual subscription is available at £12 for an individual, £18 for family and £6 for under 18.  Non-members are welcome to attend lectures at a charge of £2-00 per person per lecture. 

We run an indoor lecture programme with illustrated talks on a wide variety of topics 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.  

Since October 2017 we have moved from Hull University's Scarborough Campus to 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  buidling as you look at it from a front view.  Signage will be present to guide to the lecture.

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.

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

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
