Events

In this page we’ve listed all the regular local society events that we are told or heard – this does not stop them or others being noted closer to the time as well, or additions being made to the page. If you can’t see your local society’s programme here, please let us know if you want that adding in.

Also please let us know if your society’s details are incorrect or need amending. All details are correct to the best of our knowledge, however it is suggested you confirm with the appropriate organisation. The best way to contact us is through emailing cbanorth@archaeologyuk.org.

Enjoy! As ever check with the local society concerned for any further details that you may need. Their details can be found on our Local Societies and Groups page. The date below gives you when this listing was last updated.
