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 recorded many of the talks from the meeting and keeps
members updated with William news.
Sadly, due to rising costs and the retirement of our Magazine editor
the published magazine has ceased. So this website is now the prime
source of information of the Society.
However, 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 meeting in 2019 on Saturday April 27th was a big success with many
Next year's meeting will be in Norwich organised by Richmal Crompton's
great neice Kate Massey.
