WELCOME TO

WINCHESTER CATHOLIC HISTORY SOCIETY

  • Instagram

The aim of our Society is

‘to develop and foster an interest in, and an appreciation of history, especially in Catholic, local and English history’.

 

We achieve this by holding monthly talks by speakers who are experts in their field. We aim to cover a wide range of topics each season and, in addition, we arrange at least one trip to a place of historical interest.

 

We look forward to welcoming our members and visitors (pre booking not required) to our meetings from September 2022 to June 2023. 

 

Please do not attend if you are feeling unwell or have any symptoms relating to Covid-19.
