COVID restrictions have affected our ability to hold our normal regular programme of activities and events.
In previous years we have welcomed a distinguished historian to deliver the W.G. Hoskins Lecture, named after the first head of the Department of English Local History at the University of Leicester (now the Centre for Regional and Local History). Admission to this lecture is free to members, and is followed by tea and cakes.
Each year we have had a summer outing, which generally included a guided tour of a town and some of its most interesting buildings, often arranged with the help of a local history society. There was also a spring event, either a day conference or a study weekend.
Our aim is to restart our events programme as soon as possible
