Please Note:

Due to the ongoing issue regarding the Covid-19 virus disease (Coronavirus), all meetings are cancelled until the Government allows and a suitable location can be secured. It is unlikely to be before September 2021. The AGM was cancelled for 2020 and the present committee will continue to serve. The situation will be assessed by the committee on an on-going basis. 

Rushden & District History Society was formed early in 1991. It aims to encourage and facilitate the study and preservation of Northamptonshire history.

The society is run by a committee of up to twelve, elected annually at the Annual General Meeting (A.G.M.).

Subscriptions are £6 for an individual, and £9 for family membership. We welcome visitors to our meetings at a cost of £2.50 at the door. Members pay £1.50. Membership forms may be obtained by clicking here .
