Events Programme

The Society runs an extensive Events programme including day visits to a variety of institutions, private collections and places of interest, study weekends and overseas tours.

Members are entitled to attend any of the various lectures or symposia held throughout the year and participate in special visits, study weekends or tours, subject to availability of places. There is also a programme of early evening study events organised by the FHS Grants Committee, specifically for junior museum/heritage curators, MA/PhD students & young professionals in the trade.For further information on these events click here.

GRANTS AVAILBLE for FHS UK & Overseas visits including one day visits

The FHS Grants Committee now meet quarterly to consider all applications from members, to support their participation in FHS foreign and UK study trips where the cost of a trip exceeds £45.  Please contact Jill Bace at for further information and grant application forms.


Cancellation Policy

Please note that no refunds will be given for cancellations for events costing £10.00 or less. In all other cases, cancellations will be accepted up to seven days before the date of a visit, but refunds will be subject to a £10.00 deduction for administrative costs. Please note that in the rare instances where members cannot pay until the day of a visit, they will still be charged the full amount for the day if cancelling less than seven days before the visit, or if they fail to attend.  This is necessary as the Society has usually paid in advance for a certain number of members to participate in e.g. a tour/lunch.  Separate arrangements are made for study weekends and foreign tours and terms are clearly stated on the printed details in each case.
