The Hungerford Historical Association

Welcome to the website of the Hungerford Historical Association.

Established in 1979, the HHA is one of the
best supported groups in the town,
and has about 200 members.

This website is all about the HHA itself.

visit the Hungerford Virtual Museum.

The next meeting:

After two very succesful Zoom presentations on "Women at Pompeii" and "‘Mattli of Mayfair’ - Berkshire’s famous couturier of the
1940s-1970" we are pleased to confirm that we will complete our 2020-21 season of talks using Zoom.

The next talk (via Zoom) will be on Wednesday 24th March 2021 at 7.30pm.


“Hungerford in 1795 - a close-up look”, by Dr Hugh Pihlens.

Hugh's talk will build on people's knowledge that the Georgian Period was Hungerford's Golden Age by looking in more depth at the time around 1795. He will look at the people, the buildings and the activities, to help us get a feel for what it was like to live in the town at this important time.

We will email members the link to this Zoom meeting a few days ahead of the meeting.

Please note: We are still not requesting any membership fee at the present time. Members' name and contact details will remain safe with us, and your “virtual” membership (from 2019-2020) will roll on for now. Please let Roger Day know if your contact details (including email address) change.
