Handsworth Historical Society

Now over 40* years old, the Society still has more than 250 members, at least eight meetings and one outing each year, and the Old Town Hall is open for one or two days every month.

Unfortunately, we do not do as much research as we would like because in addition to the above activities the Society is represented on the City's Heritage Forum, and has been helping with the new Soho House project by providing refreshments at its open days, and it has also provided displays at the Local History Fair.

We also take school parties round the Old Town Hall by special arrangement, and during a two month period at the end of 1993 seven parties (totalling over 200 children) have visited it and been given guided tours by members of the Society.
