Welcome to the British Modern Military History Society
Welcome to the British Modern Military History Society. Formed in early 2019, we organise monthly talks for anyone interested in military history over the last 200 years from Nelson’s times to the present day.
We organise top quality talks given by writers, academics, former military personnel, and experts in their field with a wide variety of topics – hopefully an interesting cocktail to encourage you to join us. Based in Woodcote Village Hall RG8 0QY (near Wallingford) in South Oxfordshire, we can accommodate up to 100 people at each talk in pleasant surroundings, offering a warm and welcoming evening out.
We have a full schedule of monthly talks scheduled throughout 2020 and most of 2021 on El Alamein, the Cold War, the Falklands, the Spanish Civil War and the Battle of the Atlantic and much more – something to appeal to everyone, we hope. Check out the full programme and talk details on the website or our Facebook pages.
The BMMHS meetings previously planned for April, May, June and July 2020 are all CANCELLED due to COVID-19
Ticket Pricing, Reservations and Venue Directions
Entry cost is just £8, payable (cash only) on the door. This includes your entry ticket to the talk, a Q & A, refreshments (beer, wine, soft drinks) and light snacks (sandwiches etc.). At each talk, we also make a contribution to a military related charity of our speaker’s choice. We also hold a raffle at each talk.
Doors open at 7:00pm and talks are scheduled to start at 7:30 pm. Entrance to the main hall is via the main entrance on the Reading Road in Woodcote.
Car parking is available on site, but can get quite busy. Disabled parking and access to the hall is available.
As many of our talks do ‘sell out’ in advance, we recommend you reserve your places well in advance to avoid disappointment by contacting us on firstname.lastname@example.org We will then confirm your reservation back to you if seats are available.
If you have any other questions, please contact us on email@example.com
We look forward to welcoming you to our meeting.
