At History Society, we are dedicated to all your social and academic needs through our plethora of social events and opportunities to enrich your degree with academic talks, volunteering as well as the chance to write for our new monthly magazine!
Over the many years of our society's existence, we have grown into one of the university's largest and most recognised societies which, through our variation of socials and academic support, has led to us winning 2019-2020's Society of the Year- an award which we are very proud and grateful to uphold.
We welcome all students, so whether you study history as a degree or are looking for people who share your love of Horrible Histories, look no further!
Through purchasing a membership to our society, you will get the opportunity to be a part of one of the biggest and most active societies on campus, where you will be supported by our close-knit community of like-minded individuals with a love for history!
As a member, you will get first priority over tickets for our events and activities such as the Annual Tour, along with discounted tickets to our themed Balls and certain other events.
At History Society, we combine our love of history with a lively social calendar of events ranging from our iconic 1940s and 1920s themed balls, an Annual Tour abroad and a Boat Party down the River Thames!
Aside from our main events, we also run a plethora of smaller events throughout the year: regular pub socials, Student vs Academic quizzes, museum crawls, walking tours and an Ice Skating trip being but a few.
Despite the current COVID restrictions, we have been hard at work adapting our events calendar to fit within government and university guidelines.
Some of our exciting new activities for term one and beyond will include socially distanced trips to museums and Ghost tours in addition to fancy dress quizzes and themed movie nights which you can attend in person or via video call.
We are really looking forward to welcoming new members and answering any questions you may have, whether it be about the society, university life or us as a committee! Come and check our socials for more information or join our new Facebook messenger group to have a chat with us.
