The FCELH arrange a regular programme of activities and events.
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.
Each year we have a summer outing, which generally includes a guided tour of a town and
some of its most interesting buildings, often arranged with the help of a local
history society. There is also a spring event, either a day
conference or a study weekend.
