How to book

Important: before you book

Welcome to the booking page. You will find helpful information here to make your booking simple and straightforward.

Many events and activities at The Centre for Heritage and Family History are in high demand, and proving to be extremely popular. Tickets and places can sell out very quickly.

For courses, workshops and walks, numbers are limited so early booking is strongly recommended.

Book early. It secures your place and avoids possible disappointment later when demand for an event is high.


Discounts for current society members

Where events are ticketed, members enjoy useful discounts on ticket prices – use the details and current coupon codes in the latest edition of the Berkshire Family Historian.

A potentially discounted price 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 and pay online.


Download a booking form

If you prefer not to book online, download an event booking form as a PDF, complete it, and send it, with your cheque (payable to Berkshire Family History Society) for full payment, to the society at The Centre address.
