… 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 copy of each issue as part of their subscription. Every issue contains news, articles, reviews, and a diary of events arranged by local history societies around the county.

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

We hold bi-annual day-schools covering a wide range of subjects. The last one was on Saturday 20th October 2018 at Ravenshead Village Hall on the theme of “In Sickness and in Health” which ranged over the effects of war, disability, poverty and poor sanitation on local communities. The next one will be on Saturday 23rd March 2019.

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 hold meetings four times each year and the next one will be on Tuesday 6th August 2019 where poet and performer Panya Banjoko  will tell the story of the contribution of the British West Indian Regiment to the First World War

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.
