Who we are

Media lies at the heart of British life; whether through its historical embrace of the daily newspaper, the modulated tones of the BBC or its enthusiasm for voicing its opinion through Twitter, the rowdy, rambunctious, irreverent nature of British democracy is reflected in the country’s love of news, views and comment.

The Media Society is a charity which exists to reflect that passion and exuberance through an exciting, diverse and engaging events programme encouraging anyone with an interest in media to get involved, listening to and questioning those at the heart of this enthralling industry.

Our membership includes journalists, broadcasters, PR folk and indeed anyone who has a connection with media. But just as media affects everyone, so our membership is open to all.

Our mission is straightforward; to surprise, provoke, inspire, educate and entertain.

So enjoy exploring our website, look at our events calendar and why not keep up-to-date by joining the Media Society?

After all, in media, it’s now. Or never.
