A society for those interested in history
- both local and worldwide

From September to March it provides fortnightly talks from distinguished speakers to audiences of 200-300 members and their guests. Meetings, held at the Digby Hall, Hound Street, Sherborne, start at 8pm, preceded by tea or coffee.

In the summer months there is also a programme of visits to places of historical interest in Southern England.
