Over the last 40 years the Society has grown from strength to strength. We have a fascinating range of publications, some interesting projects and active participation in local events
We are now based in The Old Print Works, in the eighteenth century house which fronts on to the Moseley Road, and next to the Gap Café. Our base is right next to the lovely gallery space at the Works, which is ideal for exhibitions.

Our monthly meetings are held at St Paul’s Venture, Malvern St. off Clifton Road, Balsall Heath, B12 8NN. Why not come along? Visitors and new members are always welcome. We make a charge of £3 for visitors, which includes a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits.
The next meeting of the Society will be held on MONDAY NOVEMBER 27TH at 10-45 a.m for an 11.15 start. The Speaker will be Phil Griffiths. He will tell the story from the earliest coins in Ancient Greece, through the first coins to circulate in Britain, the Roman and Medieval periods right up to decimalisation and the present day with a glimpse into the future.
This is the second of our winter daytime meetings. Please note the slightly earlier start time.
At our base at The Old Print Works we have an extensive indexed collection of photographs, Directories from the past, maps, local books, resources and a selected range of artefacts for use with schools and groups.
