About

The Classical Association

The Classical Association were founded on the 19 December 1903 ‘to promote the development and maintain the well-being of Classical studies’ and from the beginning our members have come from all walks of life. Through the network of local branches, the CA supports Classics in local areas through school reading competitions, play readings and outings to places of Classical interest.

Today the Classical Association is the largest Classical organisation in Great Britain. It has a worldwide membership, and unites the interests of all who value the study of the languages, literature and civilisation of ancient Greece and Rome.

You can find out more about the Classical Association and its activities on its website.
