The Penistone History Group
The Penistone History Group have been holding regular meetings and presentations since 1986.
The talks are interesting, informative and most all, enjoyable. They cover old, local and modern history plus some by sessions by collectors and enthusiasts, many with local connections. Most are supported by a video screen presentation.
Meetings are held on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of every month except August.
We have to make a small charge to cover expenses (hire of room, cost of speakers etc). Our current charges are:
Annual Subscription: £12.00 | Single Meeting: £2. | Visitors: £3.
Entry / registration: 1.45pm | Meetings start: 2.00pm
If you would like to join or would like more information please use the form on the contact page or call in either on the Wednesday or the regular Thursday Archive session. Unfortunately we are not currently able to provide a contact phone number.
Due to Corona Virus please make sure meetings are taking place before attending.
