Weekend History Seminar 2018

Every year we get together for a weekend of history discussions, debates and talks with good food, conversations and some laughs too. We always have a pleasant and rewarding weekend in the company of like-minded enthusiasts.


Friday 23th February until Sunday lunch 25th February 2018


The venue is just on the outskirts of Birmingham city centre, provides first class accommodation, and is a central venue easily accessible for our members.

Hillscourt Conference Centre,
Rose Hill,
B45 8RS



The theme of the weekend will be ‘Peace after War’ so as usual there is plenty of scope for some stimulating discussion. The idea behind this weekend is to encourage members, especially new ones, to informally meet and discuss their chosen aspects of history amongst like-minded, friendly people. This can be either over coffee or by submitting a paper.


We know the idea of speaking in front of an audience is, for some, a rather daunting task, so this is the ideal venue for you to have a go and see how easy it is talking about your favourite subject to a friendly, interactive audience. It not only can help you but it also helps us to promote the scholarly study of history. Time slots can vary from fifteen minutes to an hour.

Come along

Even if you do not wish to present a paper then please do consider attending, you will enjoy a pleasant and rewarding weekend.

Cost of weekend

The cost for the weekend per person is £220. There is no single supplement and all rooms are ensuite with WiFi access, tea and coffee facilities and TV. Day rate attendance to include lunch only is £40.00. As we nearly always run into an evening session you may wish to extend the day rate to include dinner in the evening. If so this will be an additional £40.00 for Friday evening and £40.00 for Saturday evening
