Friends explore Wenlock PrioryActivities

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.

Study days have been held at Much Wenlock, Leicester, Kineton and Bolsover.

Study weekends have been held in Cirencester, Beverley, Gloucestershire, Ironbridge, King's Lynn and Oxford.
