Weekend History Seminar 2019

Friday 22nd February until Sunday lunch 24th February 2019

This venue just on the outskirts of Birmingham city centre, proved to be a first class accommodation as well as a central venue easily accessible for members. The theme of the weekend will be ‘Anniversaries’ so a wide ranging theme to enable everyone to be able to take part. If you have never attended before the idea behind this weekend is to encourage members, especially new ones, to informally meet and discuss their chosen aspect 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.

Even if you do not wish to present a paper then please do consider attending, you will enjoy a pleasant and rewarding weekend, as testified by those who have attended in the past. Included in the weekend will be a visit to a local attraction – this year’s choice of venue is yet to be decided.
