Events Programme


While we cannot arrange physical visits, we are bringing the FHS to you through our online events programme.  We arrange online Sunday-evening lectures on all aspects of furniture history in collaboration with our colleagues at BIFMO (British & Irish Furniture Makers Online), plus other events and seminars.  All our events are advertised on our website (scroll down), so please keep checking for details.  Follow us on Instagram ( for news and updates!

MEMBERS: Online events are free to members, who are automatically sent (if they subscribe to the mailing list) a link via email, one week before each event.

NON-MEMBERS are warmly invited to join us, for a small charge of £5.  To register and pay for events, please email our Events Secretary, Beatrice Goddard, at

JOIN US!  Without income from physical events, the Society needs new members more than ever, so please join us!  You will have free access to all our online events, a quarterly newsletter with news and reviews, an invitation to a free Annual Lecture, and an annual Journal, Furniture History.
