London Historians' Monthly Pub Meet

A London Historians Event

We have an informal gathering of socialising on the first Wednesday of every month. From 6:30 pm. All are welcome.

Usually we use upstairs at the Hand and Shears, 1 Middle Street, Cloth Fair EC1A 7JA. This historic pub was awarded Grade 1 listed status in February 2020, one of only two London pubs thus listed.

HOWEVER Since Covid we have been continuing pub meet-ups, but via Zoom. We advise Zoom log-in details via members’ monthly newsletter.

We have about 30 attendees most months and you can come as early or late as you like, we’re always still there at Last Orders. All welcome, not just LH members.

Meetings for all of 2021 are as follows: Wed 6 January; Wed 3 February; Wed 3 March; Wed 7 April; Wed 5 May; Wed 2 June; Wed 7 July; Wed 4 August; Wed 1 September; Wed 6 October; Wed 3 November; Wed 1 December.
