Our primary objective is the education of the public in the history of the Borough of Woking and nearby parishes.
Our main activity is a programme of eight talks each year by visiting and home-grown speakers on aspects of the history of Woking and other historical topics. Doors open at 7.45pm and the talks begin at 8.00pm. There is always time to socialize over a cup of tea or coffee afterwards and we welcome visitors as well as members.
Other activities include visits to places of historic interest and opportunities to work with fellow organizations such as The Lightbox, the Surrey Archaeological Society, Friends of Woking Palace and the Surrey History Centre.
From 2017, meetings will be held in The Gallery, Christ Church, Jubilee Square, Woking GU21 6YG.
Our newsletter is issued four times a year, keeping members in touch with Society activities and forthcoming events and exhibitions in Surrey and beyond. Members also contribute articles of historical interest.
Members with email access also receive an electronic News Bulletin six times a year with information on Society news and local events which may be interest to members

In 2017, Members will pay £12 (single), £20 (2 adults in the same house) and £6 for Junior (under 18) membership per year which covers all meetings and the newsletter. Visitors are welcome at the meetings for a charge of £3.
