 The North East Labour History Society Minimize

Founded in 1967 the North East Labour History Society is Britain's oldest regional labour history society. It is dedicated to the study of working people's history in the region, particularly during the modern period. We have a committee drawn up from labour historians and activists in the region. We encourage an atmosphere of debate and discusson on both historical and contemporary issues.

Members of the society are involved in various projects, including the mapping of workers' history in the region since the second world war. We have a strong interest in recording the lives of people who contributed to the history of this regional with a strong committment to oral history. We are also keen to find and save personal effects and papers of relevance to North East history. 

We publish an annual journal, North East History and a series of Newsletters. To learn more about working people's history in the North East, check out our Readers' Guide and add to it your own favourites.

We organise public meetings on a roughly bi-monthly basis with a monthly workshop/discussion group, First Tuesday and also social events such as walks, river cruises, coach trips and music nights. We carry reports  on this web site of our activities.

Our new web-site includes a message board/discussion page. Users are invited to contribute information and opinions on relevant issues.

We also have  links to other interesting history and archive websites.
