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
