Little Waldingfield History Society


We put on about ten local history talks or other events each year on a wide variety of historical subjects we believe will be of interest to members and non members alike. Our talks are generally held in our lovely Edwardian reading room – The Parish Room – in Church Road Little Waldingfield on Wednesday evenings, commencing 7.30 pm, or will be clearly flagged if to be held elsewhere. All our previous  presentations are summarised after the event and may be viewed on this website, whilst a current programme of events is on the next page.

Current prices for our regular talks are £2.00 for members and £4.00 for non-members, which gets you:

  • Entry to a great talk, typically of an hours duration;
  • Tea or coffee plus biscuits after; and
  • Access to what has become a great social gathering bringing friends, neighbours and colleagues together.

You won’t know what you’ve missed until you come along!

We have also been awarded an HLF “All Our Stories” grant to research the history of Little Waldingfield and to conduct oral interviews – please refer our blogsite (littlewaldingfieldhistorysociety) on WordPress for more information about this exciting project.

Lastly we are members of the Suffolk Local History Council who encourage and support the study of local history and to act as an umbrella organisation for groups and individuals with similar interests in the county of Suffolk. They also keep a diary of events and their website can be accessed by clicking here.
