The branch committee hopes that its members, supporters and friends are keeping well. In fact, we hope that everyone keeps well during these strange times.

The National Waterfront Museum, which is instructed by the National Museum of Wales, has told us that our first post-Covid talk can take place. This will feature the HA president Professor Peter Mandler speaking about ‘The Origins of Mass Society: Speech, Crime, Sex and Drink in Urbanising Britain, 1780–1870’, and will take place at 11.00am on Saturfay 18 September at the National Waterfront Museum. There will be social distancing rules in place and attendance is by booking only. We’ll let you know the details of the restrictions once we’re made aware of them.



Our new-style Chronicle will be available at the event. The cost of a copy is:


     For members:              £3 each

     For non-members:     £5 each


To know more about the new Chronicle , take a look at the Chronicle page on this website.




Please look after yourselves. We look forward to seeing you at the president’s talk.
