The Beatrix Potter Society (Reg. Charity no. 281198) was founded in 1980 in the United Kingdom by a group of people professionally involved in the curatorship of Beatrix Potter material. From the start it set out to be a focus for those with a serious interest in all aspects of Beatrix Potter’s life and work and so it remains today. The Society welcomes new Members worldwide.

The Society was lucky enough to be able to purchase in 2012 this exciting cabinet, filled with treasures, mostly natural history specimens, collected by Beatrix Potter. The cabinet had never before been seen by the public and it is now on loan to the National Trust and currently on display in the Beatrix Potter Gallery, Hawkshead, Cumbria.
