Events and Activities

Our programme of local history talks runs from September to May each year, at St Luke’s Hall. Where possible we make recordings of the meetings available to members on Youtube for a limited period.

Our Local History Afternoon is held in alternate years, and in the Summer months we arrange visits to places of interest in Gloucestershire and further afield, and local history walks led by knowledgeable guides.
