A network of local heritage groups

Other History Events

We strive to highlight the wide range of talks and events available to anyone interested in our area but it is almost impossible to keep abreast of so much that is going on. If you have a history or archaeology event you’d like to publicise on our calendar you can submit an entry on our Add Your Event page.
