"What's On" at the Christchurch History Society

One of the objectives of the Society as a non-profit making organisation is to promote and encourage the study of history, heritage and archaeology in Christchurch and its environs in Hampshire and Dorset, by means of lectures and visits as well as attending community events.       The evening lectures run from September through to June at Christchurch Junior School, Clarendon Road in Christchurch and attract audiences in excess of a hundred Members and their Guests.     The visits, mainly in the summer months, enable Members to visit locations in the region, often those that are not normally open to the general public.
