Welcome to our website.

We are the Essex Branch of the national Historical Association. We meet regularly and organise a programme of talks aimed to appeal to all with a love of history, from history professionals to people with no historical background at all. For our 2022/23 Programme will be returning to our regular meeting place, Trinity Methodist Church Chelmsford, we hope to continue to broadcast them via Zoom.
We offer high-quality presentations from historians, usually experts in their fields, about their current researches into history.  We seek to have talks about local, national and international history,  including political, economic, social and cultural aspects, and acknowledging diversity, as well as to have contributions from ancillary specialists like archivists, archaeologists and museum curators.
We also put on other activities including history visits and CPD events.
