The Lewes History Group aims to study and record the history of Lewes, and to make the history of the county town accessible to the local community, and to others who share our interest. To do this, we have:

grey rectangle activitiesMonthly public talks, and a monthly Bulletin.
Members’ own research projects, or group undertakings, supported by research meetings to review progress and courses to develop expertise.
A website providing access to research resources and links to useful organisations.

grey rectangle MeetingsNormally, we hold our public talks on the second Monday of each month, at the King’s Church, Brooks Road, Lewes BN7 2BY. Talks are currently via Zoom.

Everyone is welcome at our talks. Zoom talks are free for members and £4 for non-members.
