What we do :
The Society holds regular meetings in local venues (see Events), holds exhibitions, and assists with enquiries about Brislington and family connections. Members receive a regular newsletter. Talks on Brislington and its history are given to interested groups, illustrated with photographs from our extensive collection and we are also happy to support other bodies with associated interests (see Contacts). We would welcome any information, photographs etc you may have about Brislington to add to our knowledge and to record for future generations.

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. Admission £1.50 members £2.00 Non-members.
