Friends of the Mackintosh Society (North East England) was formed to provide a northern focal point for enthusiasts of Mackintosh's work.

We are affiliated to the main CRM Society in Glasgow and hold regular meetings in York as well as arranging visits to Glasgow to view Mackintosh's buildings. We have also extended the scope of our activities to include visits to buildings designed by prominent contemporaries e.g. CFA Voysey, MA Baillie Scott, George Walton and others.
