Membership of the Friends of the Centre for English Local History is open to anyone with an interest in local history, whether the history of Leicestershire or of any other part of England and Wales. We are an active and enthusiastic group of local historians, with a wide range of interests.

Members may attend the Thursday afternoon seminars held in Leicester, receive our annual Newsletter and join any of the events on our programme, which include outings, study days or weekends and conferences. Admission to the annual W.G. Hoskins lecture is free to members, and is followed by tea and cakes, and a second-hand book sale.

Membership costs £12 per annum (£15 for joint membership: two people at the same address). Please consider adding a donation, if you can afford to do so, to help to further our support of the Centre and its students.
