Cornish Heritage Societies & Groups Programmes of Events

Here we try to share information about the programme of events being organised by smaller societies, groups and organisations throughout Cornwall. We also share these on social media and through mentions in the  various Voice newspaper editions published throughout Cornwall

Send us your poster programme of events or link and we will add this to our listings as well as your society details to our list of Cornish heritage related groups and organisations. This includes all types of Cornish history, culture and environmental organisations.

Many groups have not yet restarted their events due to uncertainty regarding the ongoing pandemic. We will attempt to keep this page updated as we learn of additional society events.

There may be occasional cancellation due to the ongoing COVID pandemic for numerous reasons. We will list these here for reference prior to the event where we have been informed. Many events will be rescheduled and these will be mentioned here.

Cornwall Archaeological Society

Cornwall Archaeological Society seeks to:

  • Identify new archaeological sites through survey and excavations
  • Record sites, monuments and buildings in the field as part of one off or long-term projects;
  • Protect sites, monuments and buildings through co-operation with landowners, Historic England and Cornwall Council
  • Conserve archaeological monuments through active management work on site
  • Monitor the condition of our monuments through field visits
  • Help fund Archaeological research projects in the county by awarding grants

The Society has always encouraged Members to get involved with as wide a variety of activities as possible. Opportunities to learn more about archaeology in Cornwall and elsewhere are provided by an annual conference and a winter lecture series and a summer walks programme that takes in all corners of Cornwall.

St Tudy Historic Society / St Tudy History Group

The group has gone from strength to strength more than doubling its numbers to 40 in less than three years.  Its intention is to discover, preserve and disseminate the history of the Parish of St Tudy while also fostering an interest in Cornish and wider history.

St Tudy Historical Society usually meets in the Village Hall at 7:30pm on the last Monday of each month (except August and December).  A variety of external speakers are arranged with occasional visits to places of interest while members are encouraged to share the results of their own studies during Members’ Interest meetings. The full year’s programme can be enlarged and viewed clicking the right-hand image.
