The Honourable Society of Knights of the Round Table was formed in London in 1720 by a group of actors, artists and literary friends to keep the values of King Arthur alive. One notable early member was Charles Dickens.
Today The Society offers exciting opportunities to young people and awards grants to those who have made an exceptional start to their career.
The society is a British charity.
The Society gives financial awards to young people, nominated by the institutions they attend.
Our support is not just financial. Our members offer a unique supportive network, which is comprised of high level expertise in a wide range of fields.
Our awards are given to help people with exceptional talents who their institutions believe will benefit the most from our support.
Becoming a member of The Honourable Society of the Knights of the Round Table is a fulfilling endeavour. Our awards are funded by a relatively modest annual membership fee, but more than that members offer their time and expertise to award holders, and their sense of fun to our social occasions. We also welcome corporate sponsorship.
