Balsall Heath Local History Society was founded in 1979, since when regular meetings have been held on the last Thursday of each month. Meetings usually take the form of talks and presentations on a variety of subjects, ranging from Birmingham history to more local topics relating to Balsall Heath in particular. "Members nights" are also sometimes held, when our own society members share their memories about their early years in Balsall Heath or tell us about their own research.
We warmly welcome visitors and new members to our meetings which are held at 7.00p.m. (for a 7:30 start) on the last Thursday of each month at St. Paul's Venture, Malvern St, B12 8NN, off Clifton Rd, Balsall Heath. The annual subscription for becoming a member stands at £10.00 (plus £1 for each meeting) and the membership year runs from April. Visitors are always welcome to come along at a charge of £3.00, which includes a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits.
