We hold two annual conferences, Spring and Winter and we also promote and participate in other events both in Britain and abroad. We also support otherwise unfunded events through our Conferences and Initiatives Fund.

Spring Conference 2016

The Spring Conference 2016 will be held on 4-6 April, at Wortley Hall, near Sheffield.

Current postgraduate research students who would like to apply for a bursary to cover the cost of the Spring conference should contact Nicola Verdon, who will give details of how to apply. The last date for applications is 4 March. A limited number of bursaries are available, and the Society will judge applications on the basis of likelihood to benefit, and the relevance of their projects to rural/agricultural themes.

Rural History 2017

Rural History 2017, the 3rd conference of EurHO, will be held in Leuven, Belgium, September 11-14, 2017.
