About the Group

If you have an interest in local history why not join us at our regular monthly meetings? We have a range of speakers on topics that generally have a bias towards Sheringham, North Norfolk or Norfolk county. For example subjects such as Repton and Sheringham Park, Early Man in North Norfolk and Norfolk and the Titanic Sinking have all been covered in the recent past.

Meetings are on the first Wednesday of most months, normally starting at 7.00 for 7.30.

The Sheringham History Group (SHG) started as part of the Preservation Society, chaired by Mike Felmingham, which was responsible for the ‘Heritage Walk’ and Blue Plaques around the town.

For the past few years , under the guidance of Hugh Bradbury, the SHG has usually met at the Sheringham Museum at the Mo, on the seafront. Occasionally sessions are run at Sheringham Little Theatre. We also arrange at least one visit each year  to a local site of historic interest. The  group holds a December social event at a local venue.

Following the release of most of the Covid-19 restrictions from the 19th of July, real face to face meetings have resumed. An outline programme for the remainder of 2021 and into 2022 can be found on the Future Events page.

Normally everyone is welcome, local residents and visitors to Sheringham alike. But at the time of writing we have decided to limit attendance to members until we are certain that meetings with a larger audience will be safe.

To give a flavour of our meetings, topics covered at our most recent meetings are outlined on the archive page.
