The first Just William Day was held in Leeds in 1983 by a group of like-minded William book collectors who decided to meet up to discuss their collections, show others what books and other “goodies” they had, swop, buy and generally have a good time discussing William antics.
It has been held around the country ever since.

As the meetings and the William fan base got bigger, it was decided in 1990 that the proceedings should be put on to a more organised footing and the Just William Society was born. The annual subscription provided the resources to produce a regular magazine - the Just William Society Magazine - which records many of the talks from the meeting and keeps members updated with William news.

All William fans, whether members of the Society or not, are welcome to come along and enjoy a day of talks, books, friendship – not to mention the acting of one of those radio plays that we so enjoyed just after the war.

The Just William Day 2016 held in April was a great success and we all look forward to next year.

The meeting will take place at Rohampton University on April 8th 2017.

The cost, will be £32 per adult
(£10 for youngsters of William’s age). This will include coffee, tea and biscuits, with a
sandwich lunch with fruit juice.

Roehampton has agreed to open the Richmal Crompton archives on the previous day,
probably at 3 p.m. (Any member can attend, even those not able to come on the Saturday.)
The University can also offer bed and breakfast accommodation, probably at £65 a
room, which is a big reduction on this year and more than compensates for the increased
meeting charge for anybody staying.
We will have to go offsite for our evening meals, but we are told that there are plenty of
good local pubs in the area. Alan Ring has offered to scout them out, while Kate Massey
is kindly offering to fund a bus to take us there and back.
Terry Taylor will organise the meeting and Alan will sort out the programme (so start
sending him ideas as soon as you can)
There are, as you see, some bits still to finalise, so we will include full details of how
and where to book as soon as they have been arranged.
