Welcome to the website of Redditch Local History Society. We have regular monthly meetings and are active in promoting the fascinating history of our town. Please visit the pages on this site and do not hesitate to contact us if you need more information. We welcome anyone interested in the history of our town and encourage participation in our activities.
We have monthly meetings throughout the year. At the meetings we follow our activities and allow members to present their own local history activities. We also aim at every meeting to have an activity such as a presentation or film related to the history of Redditch or our local region.
From the Activities page you will find links to details of our Meetings, Events where we are involved and Other history related events and activities in the area.
From the Activities page you can also download our leaflet with details of our meetings, contact details and an application form for membership.
The Redditch Local History Society was founded in late 2009 with the aim of promoting, preserving and protecting the heritage of the unique history of Redditch, a small town in the West Midlands.
Our meetings are at Redditch Library and we work closely with them and with the Forge Mill Needle Museum and Bordesley Abbey Visitor Centre. We document and communicate the history of Redditch by means of exhibitions, talks, maps, walks and audio/visual records.
