Browsing at our annual booksale 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 or 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. Each year we welcome a distinguished historian to deliver the W.G. Hoskins Lecture, named after the first head of the Department (now Centre) of English Local History at Leicester. Admission to this lecture is free to members, and is followed by tea and cakes, and a second-hand book sale.

As a registered charity, FCELH provides financial and other support to the Centre for English Local History at the University of Leicester and its students, for example, books and research resources for the library, and bursaries for the Centre's post-graduate students. These grants enable students from any part of the world and from all walks of life to pursue their interest in English and Welsh local history at the highest level.
