Membership of the Friends of the Centre for English Local History (FCELH) is open to
anyone with an interest in local history, whether the history of Leicestershire
or of any other part of the country. We are an active and enthusiastic group of
local historians, with a wide range of interests.
The Friends of the Centre for English Local History is a registered charity
(number 1073528) which supports the Centre for English Local History at the
University of Leicester and its students, for example through the provision of
library donations, student bursaries and practical help.
We have a programme of events, which includes study days and weekends, outings,
lectures and conferences, a small publication programme, and an annual
second-hand book sale. Follow this link for more information
