 Sociable History


A new club for over 55s

Meeting monthly at Leeds City Museum, the Sociable History club offers monthly talks and the chance to meet fellow history lovers.

We hold a diverse range of talks, from stories of celebrated Leeds residents to the fascinating histories of Leeds institutions.

Sociable History is the sister group to the 1152 Club at Kirkstall Abbey Museum.

For all history lovers who like a bit of socialising too!
