Branch Programmes

The local branches of the HA organise their own programmes of speaker and activities each year.  Lectures cover anything from the centenary of the Magna Carta, Marine research, First World War and Magic. Leading historians, specialists and researchers are all on the HA lectures list with new people and topics added every year. Each branch has its own arrangements on entry costs but most do not require booking – please check before arrival.
