WELCOME TO

WINCHESTER CATHOLIC HISTORY SOCIETY

This year, 2021, is our Silver Jubilee.

 

In addition to our monthly engaging talks we had hoped to celebrate with a special event this July. However, with the ongoing restrictions this will now take place in the Summer of 2022.

Our Society has grown considerably since it’s inception in 1996 and we now have speakers on wide ranging historical topics, but have remained true to our aim:


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

WHAT'S ON

Here are the exciting Events that have been planned to celebrate our Silver Jubilee Year.
