Welcome to new RHSV members

Every year we like to host an event or two in the Drill Hall, before one of our lectures, to welcome our new members. We serve drinks and cheese and the staff give new members a background briefing on the RHSV and its treasures. So you’ll learn about our Collection from Jillian Hiscock, our Collections Manager, and Helen Stitt who looks after our huge images collection and our EO, Rosemary Cameron, will outline all the other membership benefits and how you can make the most of your membership.

Because we weren’t able to host these events last year we have a bit of catching up to do! We’ve scheduled 5 of these events over the coming months and new members are welcome to attend whichever one suits them. Our lectures are usually $5 or $10 for members ($20 for non-members) however, if you book for a new member event you can attend the following lecture free-of-charge.

We’d love to see you at one of these events – please indicate in the RSVPs if you want to attend just the New Member Welcome or the New Member Welcome + Lecture

Please note that these events will only go ahead if we are not in lockdown – we really need to be in the Drill Hall to show you what the RHSV is all about. If we are in lockdown we’ll be holding more New Member Welcomes at some point in the future and we’ll contact you again. 

New Member lecture 4:30pm – 5:30pm, drinks continue until just before 6pm. Lecture 6pm – 7pm (includes Q&A).

The  remaining lecture is:

Tue 19 Oct: Barbara Minchinton on The Women of Little Lon
