You can become a member of the History Group for a small sum of £5 for the year, which gives you reduced entry (£1) to talks. Non members are also very welcome, at a cost of £3 on the door.

All meetings will take place at Clements Hall in Nunthorpe Road, starting at 7.30pm (the summer historical walk will start from the Hall).

There are a small number of free parking spaces near Clements Hall. It is also easily accessible from the station (10 minutes on foot) and by buses stopping in Blossom Street (walk along Moss Street opposite the Reel Cinema).

Contact us via Clements Hall on 01904 466086 or email
