The Sussex History Forum

Sussex History Forum logoThe History Forum is an interdisciplinary, multi-cohort group open to anyone interested in history (broadly interpreted), of any subject area and level of study, research or academia. The participant-led sessions follow an informal, open format, discussing any aspect of history chosen by the group at one of the preceding sessions. Free refreshments (including cake) are provided at meetings every other Wednesday from 1.30pm.

This ‘show and tell’ session invites you to bring an object, film extract, photo, song, advert, painting, or anything that got you thinking about history over the Summer. Glad, sad or mad, tell us how you felt about something you did, saw or watched and discuss it with the group.
