History Group

The History Group offers talks and discussions on all aspects of the human past. This is an open group and all members will be welcome. The subjects covered will be driven by members of the group. Our programme will sometimes include guest speakers to cover specialist interests and we envisage occasional visits relevant to our programme.

The Group meets at 2:00 pm on the 3rd Tuesday of the month. The venue is the Centenary Lounge in St. Mark's Church Hall. The church hall is located immediately behind St. Mark's Church on the Rugby Road, Leamington (CV32 6DL). There will be a charge of £1.00 to cover the room cost. Tea/Coffee will be available for 20p.

This is an open group so please feel free to join us on the day.

HISTORY GROUP SHARED LEARNING PROJECTS

Are you interested in joining one of our groups of between three and six members to research a history topic? The project will culminate with one or more members of the shared learning team presenting their findings to the History Group.

The first of our study groups gave a successful presentation on 'Forgotten Women'at our May meeting. We hope they will prepare a further presentation for 2020.

We would now like to start a second group looking at the local history of a number of towns or villages in our region, showing how the local events are part of the wider national and even international history.
