What’s on

The Society has a programme of talks, which are held monthly from October to May. These are usually on topics related to the local history of Richmond, Kew, Petersham and Ham, but the programme also includes other relevant subjects. Find our more about our forthcoming talks

Meetings are also sometimes held jointly with other societies and members can take part in events such as the annual West London Local History Conference.

From time to time we organise guided walks and visits to local houses and buildings of historic interest. Each year, in June or July, we organise a day trip by coach to historic houses or sites further afield, particularly those with local connections.
