Member of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining Grouping

Founded in 2010: 'Since then dozens of distinguished speakers have come to Salons in Derby to engage in debates and talk about their work and often to put forward some very controversial ideas. Like other Salons in the UK and internationally, we defend the freedom to think, to act, to say what needs saying – even if it offends others ... The East Midlands Salon, like those that currently exist in Brighton, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Sheffield, Scotland, Dublin and Zurich, is inspired by the Academy of Ideas (AoI) and its flagship event the Battle of Ideas Festival.'

'The Great Central Railway Society (GCRS) exists to promote an historical interest in the Great Central Railway (GCR) which existed until the Grouping of 1923 when it became part of the London & North Eastern Railway (LNER). We are often confused with the heritage railway operation at Loughborough which is called the Great Central Railway. Although we are supportors of the heritage railway we are not a part of it.'  The Society 'arranges meetings for all members twice a year - the AGM in April/May and an Autumn meeting in October'.
