… to the website for the NOTTINGHAMSHIRE LOCAL HISTORY ASSOCIATION which was formed in 1953 to bring together people and organisations interested in all aspects of local history in the county.

We publish our magazine The Nottinghamshire Historian twice a year and members receive a free copy. Every issue contains news, articles and reviews. 

We hold bi-annual Day Schools covering a wide range of subjects. Unfortunately we have taken the decision to cancel the Day School planned for October 2020 at Ravenshead because of concerns associated with the Coronavirus situation. We hope to be able to reschedule this for 2021.

We also publish a FREE monthly e-newsletter detailing topical news items and current events at local societies.

The Angel Row Forum takes place in the Local Studies Library on Angel Row in Nottingham and was established as a FREE event for anyone with an active interest in local history. We normally hold meetings four times each year and the next one was scheduled for Tuesday 5th May 2020 where Dr. Richard Gaunt of the University of Nottingham was to give a talk about political satires and caricatures – however this has had to be cancelled as well. We hope to be able to have this talk later in the year.

There is an ever-changing and growing News section on the site, where you can follow local, regional and national developments in local history. We also maintain a list of the local history societies in the county, and a calendar of events, as well as a page of useful links. and a list of speakers.
