Discover more about the history of the city and surrounding areas. Dear members/friends, Following the government’s advice, I have today taken the decision to postpone all Society meetings. This includes both monthly members’ meetings and our annual charity event planned for Wednesday 29th April. This step was obviously very regretful, but inevitable. It is our intention to re-arrange the charity event as soon as is practicable, therefore any of you who have already purchased tickets, will be able to use them for the new date. I will of course keep you informed as to any future developments. Kind regards and stay safe. Trevor Pearce

Peterborough Local History Society was formed in 1991 by a group of individuals who believed that the city needed an association where people could come together to share and enjoy the history of this area. Since then we have grown to a Society with around 75 members who meet once every month. Some of our members are researchers, delving into specific avenues of history; some are authors of local books; whilst the majority just want to come along and learn from our various speakers.
