Welcome to the Warwickshire Local History Society

Future Lectures and Outings

IMPORTANT SOCIETY NEWS: CORONAVIRUS (updated 4th January 2021)

Our lecture programme will be delivered online for the foreseeable future, delivered by Zoom. In the current situation, lecture details are provisional, and subject to change at short notice.  Invites for online meetings will be sent to members in advance of the meeting.  Non-members are welcome to attend online meetings free of charge, for a limited time and subject to ticket availability. All people (members and non-members) wishing to attend must pre-register via Eventbrite.

We are also working hard to resume the visits programme, once venues are once more able to accept group visits.

For more information please visit our Events Page.

Member Questionnaire

In January and February 2020, the WLHS Committee gathered members’ views about our lecture venues and our pattern of meetings.  This exercise provided very helpful feedback, but we have realised that a wider survey this summer would be invaluable.  We have adapted the questionnaire from the original version, in view of the continuing prevalence of COVID-19 and the resulting precautions.  We ask all members to complete this new survey, even if you did so earlier in the year.  This will help us plan for 2021 and beyond.

Please submit one survey form per member, by 30/09/2020.  Please print off and send to WLHS c/o 3 Croft Close, Warwick CV34 6QY.
