Members and Visitors


We are organising an outing to the Richard III centre in Leicester on Sunday July 9. The coach will leave Crawford Hall at 10.00am and return at around 6.00pm. The Cost of £20 per person includes entrance at Group Rate to the Richard III centre. We have arranged also a visit to the cathedral to visit the tomb. Reasonably priced refreshements are available at the Centre.

There are many other historic sites in Leicester associated with Richard III. At the Centre it possible to purchase a "Richard III Walking Trail" for a small price.

Helen Smith is co-ordinating this visit and she should be contacted so that you can enroll either, at a meeting or on 07821 920367

We have organised an historic Walk of the Evesham Battlefield for Friday 9 June. The walk  starts at 10 am at the Bell Tower in Evesham.and takes about 2 hours. Near the Bell Tower is a back entrance to the shopping centre where there are toilets.

Perhaps not everyone wishes to be on foot for quite so long.  For anyone wanting to do a shorter walk, they could park off Greenhill, nearer the battle site and arrange for a lift into town, or simply wait for the group and join at the top of the hill. If you intend to wait at the top of Greenhill please let Helen Smith know, so that we can look out for you.

There is no charge for this walk which will be paid from Society funds. Please contact Helen Smith if you wish to take part either at the May meeting or on 07821 920367


The new membership year starts in September and members will shortly be invited to renew your subscription.

To encourage young people to enjoy history those under the age of 18 years may attend any meeting free of charge.We ask that those under the age of 16 are accompanied by an adult.

If you are interested in joining the Society, please contact Mary Alexander-Head; her telephone numbers are on the Contacts page; or simply come along to a meeting..


If you would like to see what the Society is all about, you are most welcome to come along on the night. Admission for casual visitors is £4.50.
