Please Consider Joining The Society
The aim of the Society is to promote and encourage the historical study of the town of Tewkesbury and district.
Our 'season' runs from September each year with meetings held until the following May.
Membership is renewable from 1st September each year. Annual Membership is £5 per person - if you join between May and September, or late in the season, your membership will run until the September of the following year.
Our current projects include: indexing significant items from the Tewkesbury Register newspaper (and other sources), Oral History (recording interviews with local people), and Tewkesbury men in the First World War.
The Society has a significant collection of Tewkesbury related information, known as the Woodard Database. It can be freely consulted at the Town Library and Members can also view this database on-line using a web-based facility known as Google Drive. (Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for full details.)
Each year we publish a Bulletin of written articles relating to Tewkesbury, an index to the Bulletins is on this website. We have also published a number of themed books about Tewkesbury. All can be purchased at discounted rates for THS Members.
A programme of illustrated talks is held in the Methodist Church at The Cross, from September to May at 7.45pm on the third Thursday of the month, entry for THS Members is at a discounted rate.
Outings to places of historical interest are also arranged from time to time.
