anyone with an interest in local history, whether the history of Leicestershire
or of any other part of the country. We are an active and enthusiastic group of
local historians, with a wide range of interests.

We have a programme of events, which includes study days and weekends, outings,
lectures and conferences, a small publication programme, and an annual
