Important: before you book

Welcome! Here you will find helpful information to make your booking simple and straightforward.

Events and activities at The Centre for Heritage and Family History are much in demand. They are very popular. Tickets and places often sell out quickly.

For talks, courses, workshops and walks, numbers are limited (the numbers  are different!) and early booking is strongly advised.

Book early. It means that you can be certain of your place and you avoid possible disappointment later when an event becomes 'sold out'.


Savings for current society members

For ticketed events, if you are a current member you enjoy a useful saving on your own ticket price. Use the details and current coupon codes in the most recent Berkshire Family Historian. (Find a digital copy in the Members' Area of this site)

A significant saving on your event ticket is just one of many benefits enjoyed when you join the society.


How to book


Choose the event/events that you would like to attend. Start by clicking on 'Events' in the main menu (on the left), then click on the tab (or tabs) of interest to you that appear in the sub-menu.

Clicking on any sub-menu item takes you to a general article that tells more about that group of events. It also reveals a 'Programme tab' which will lead you to details of available events of the type in which you are interested.

From that 'Programme' link, you can explore a specific event and go on to book your place and pay online.
