If you have an interest in local history then why not come along to 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 recently.
Meetings are on the first Wednesday of most months, normally starting at 7.00. with tea or coffee.
Our meetings are usually held at the Sheringham Museum, but 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.
With the indefinite closure of Sheringham Museum due to the Covid 19 emergency, we have cancelled all the remaining talks to be held there, particularly as many of our members fall into the “vulnerable” category. This leaves two potential events in October and December, details of which can be seen on the Plans for 20-21 page.
This Group 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 met at the Sheringham Museum at the Mo, on the seafront.
Everyone is welcome, local residents and visitors to Sheringham alike.
To give a flavour of our meetings, topics covered during the past several months are listed on the archive page.
