The group meets regularly for talks given by a range of different speakers on subject such as Lost Country Houses of Nottinghamshire and Sir Thomas Stanhop of Shelford Life in Tudor England.
Main meetings are held on the first Friday of the month (except August), beginning at 7.30pm at the Centenary Lounge in Keyworth Village Hall, Elm Avenue, Keyworth.
Members can engage in group or individual research projects, the results of which are normally published in the quarterly Newsletter. But there is no obligation on members to undertake research.
There are several excursions during the year and the Society also takes part in the annual Keyworth Show and the Keyworth Quiz.
Many members also meet socially and informally for coffee each Monday morning (except Bank Holidays) between 10.00am and 12.00 noon, again in the Centenary Lounge.
Membership costs £7.00 per year (£12.00 for couples) and there are currently about 100 members.
