Welcome to the Sussex History Society!
We are an academic society for anyone and everyone sharing an interest in history - be it studying history at Sussex or history enthusiasts beyond their degree subject. Becoming a member of the Sussex History Society will not only enhance your academic experience of Sussex, but also offer you a unique social experience with other like-minded history lovers.
Sussex History Society caters for both the academic and social needs of our members with a wide range of events. We have academic events such as talks from guest and faculty members on historic topics, film screenings of movies interpreting and presenting history, trips abroad to places with interesting history and trips within the UK to museums and historic sites. On the social side, we hold events such as themed nights out, bar crawls, historically themed quizzes, alcohol-free socials such as the Brighton ghost-walk, fundraising events for charities and formal events such as balls.
Also, we are connected with the University of Sussex Undergraduate History Journal. This is a platform for students to showcase their work and enhance their editing skills.
