We were founded 1980 and are affiliated with      

- Leicester Literary & Philosophical Society,

- British Mycological Society

- Leicestershire Museums Service.

Our aims are to encourage the study of fungi and their allies, especially in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

We are an informal group that values friendship and social contact. 

We have a good mix of experts and beginners and children are especially welcome. 

Members’ interests range from very general to more specific, like lichens, slime moulds, fungal pests and diseases, and even cooking and painting.
