History Day


The Society holds a History Day every year on a Saturday in October or November. This is a conference on historical themes associated with Market Harborough and its district with several speakers each giving  a presentation on a local topic. It is an event where local researchers can present the results of their specialist studies. Local societies and organisations with an historical interest have stalls and can display their work and publications.

The History day started in memory of J C Davies the local historian and headmaster who was instrumental in the setting up of the Harborough Museum as well as the author of several books on local history. The event now also commemorates the work and contribution of Michael Brown, former President of MHHS.

Previously themes have included: Women and Society, Tudor and Stuart Leicestershire, Buildings of Harborough, local transport history, and archaeology of the Hallaton Treasure.
