Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the Grassington Devonshire Institute!

The GDI exists to maintain, develop and operate Grassington Town Hall for the benefit of the people of Grassington and its surrounding villages in Upper Wharfedale.


As a registered charity, the ‘GDI’ relies entirely on membership subscriptions, hire fees and events sales to generate income, which supports both its essential running costs and contributes to an ongoing programme of repairs and improvements.

It’s a really exciting time to become a member, despite the obvious challenges posed in relation to the Covid-19 crisis in 2020. We have taken the opportunity to undertake a significant repair and improvement project in the Main Hall and we are excited to show you these changes now we have re-opened.
