Since its September 2006 launch Bidford and District History Society has enjoyed a thriving membership with meeting venues packed.

The aim of the society is to entertain and inform people who have curious minds about interesting historical subjects.

This includes guest speakers; outings and projects based on historical topics. Some meetings focus on very local issues while others consider the impact of national issues on this area (such as men going off to war).

Some meetings consider more general topics such as families owning pigs or the medieval Christmas. There is a real diversity of subjects.

Visitors are charged £4.50 each evening or can join our other 100+ members for an annual subscription of £19.00 from September 2019.

To join our Society contact Alex Grieve on 01789 491606, email:
