Meetings


The Society meets on the last Thursday of the month, at St Cuthbert’s Church Crypt, Sandy Park Road, Brislington, commencing at 7.30pm. During winter months (November to February) meetings are held in the afternoon (2.00pm). Meetings comprise a talk, which may be illustrated, by a Society member or invited speakers, on issues of general or local interest. Occasional Local History meetings, dedicated specifically to Brislington History, are also held at Wick Road Library. These are intended to be more informal events, where members are invited to join in and contribute their memories.

Forthcoming meetings:

THURSDAY 26th OCTOBER 7.30pm HOTWELLS HOWLERS present STONEY BROKE IN NO MAN'S LAND. The well-known local group will perform a selection of songs relating to World War I, including familiar tunes, with others you may not recognise. For this special performance admission will be only £1, with a retiring collection in aid of British Red Cross.
Please come to enjoy an exciting an entertaining evening in support of a very good cause.

Preview for 2018 The Society is committed to presenting at least two Brislington-themed events each year, but in 2018 we are fortunate to have arranged a full programme of events all of which will have a Brislington connection.

The Society also holds exhibitions of memorabilia and items of Brislington History. These include photographs and information eg History of Sandy Park shops. The Brislington Archaeology Project, who are linked to the Society, have provided artifacts and information about the local archaeology. We would welcome any information, photographs etc you may have about Brislington to add to our knowledge and to record for future generations.
