Other Events Across the County

(programmes of local groups and societies)

Although every effort is made to keep this list up to date, changes sometimes have to be made to published programmes by local history groups and we are not always made aware of them.  In addition, a lot of history societies are postponing their programme of talks at the moment due to the Coronavirus.  We therefore strongly recommend double-checking with individual societies before attending one of these events, to avoid disappointment.  You will be able to find contact details for these societies on our 'OTHER SOCIETIES' webpage, or by an internet search.
