The Royal Historical Society runs a varied programme of events throughout the year, including our own programme of prestigious lectures, and twice-yearly symposia hosted by institutions around Britain.

We also host a noticeboard of external events. Submit an event to the noticeboard (scroll down this page for the link) or use the menu to search and browse upcoming events.

External Events

On the noticeboard below you will find information about the wide array of historical events taking place in the coming months around the country including conferences, symposia, seminars, and lectures, as well as Calls for Papers. Listing on this noticeboard is not an indication of the Royal Historical Society’s support for an event, and we remind organisers of the recommendations in our 2018 reports on Race, Ethnicity and Equality and Gender Equality: events in the discipline should be diverse and inclusive.

The Royal Historical Society archive enables you to access videos of our lectures and other Society events.
