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 topic chosen for study will be decided amongst the group and will depend on their personal interests. It could cover any aspect of history (social, political, military, local, national or international of any era). The group could work together or separately upon agreed areas.
We hope that the projects 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 is now up and running. The working title for the Group is 'Forgotten Women'. The Group is planning on giving a presentation at our May meeting.
