Events

The Society meets once per month from September to May each year. Anyone with an interest in local history is very welcome to join us. We have guest speakers at every meeting. If a particular subject interests you then why not come along?

See our programme below. Sadly, our programme to September is suspended due to the current Coronavirus emergency.

All meetings are held in Milton-under-Wychwood Village Hall unless otherwise stated. Meetings are usually held on the third Thursday of the month from 7:30pm – 9:00pm.

Members – FREE Guests – £3 per person
