December meeting of the Society

Flappers, Fashion and Fun
Following a 45 minute talk and a round of Q & A’s, Lynda and Pam dressed as flappers will give a Charleston demonstration and then encourage people to join in. They simplify the steps and call out instructions so everyone can join in if they wish. Replica and some authentic photos etc are passed around during the talk. It’s even more fun if the audience dress up in anything glittery. Feather boas can be bought quite cheaply. A limited number of masks will be available if you want to make it a masquerade.


Our publications are all now back on sale.

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 Ort 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, on the last Thursday of most months. The next meeting will take place on Thursday September 30th at 7pm for 7-30pm. The next meeting will be on February 24th 2022, as we have cancelled the January meeting.

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.

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.
