Local and Community History Month 1 - 31 May

Local History Month News

May is Local and Community History Month!

The aim of the month is to increase awareness of local history, promote history in general to the local community and encourage all members of the community to participate.

Activities happen across the UK and include trips, library exhibitions and local lectures. It is a great way for groups to highlight local history and for local people to get involved.

Register your event

Each year the event goes from strength to strength, and a searchable database has been created where organisations can register their events. To register for free access to the HA website and add your Local events click here.

If you wish to take part we can help by including your information on our events database. We also have a free poster template, which you can download from the site to use to publicise your event.
