History

About us

Since the society was established, we have dedicated ourselves to all your social and academic needs through our range of social events and opportunities to enrich your degree. This includes talks with academics, volunteering activities, as well as the chance to write for our monthly magazine called Historia!

Our main aim is to create an environment for anyone who has an interest in history, and would like to explore it in a more casual setting. So whether you study history as a degree or are looking for people who share your love of Horrible Histories, look no further!

Events and Activities

Our main social events throughout the year are our 1940s Blitz Ball (Term 1),  Annual Dinner (Term 2), and Boat Party down the River Thames (Term 3), as well as an Annual Tour. 

During each term, we awe also run a variety of smaller events: regular pub socials, Students vs Academics quizzes, museum crawls, walking tours and an Ice Skating trip to name a few.

Despite the current COVID restrictions, we have been hard at work adapting our events calendar to fit within government and university guidelines.
