Under present circumstances due to Covid-19 we very much regret that all talks have been cancelled until further notice, except for those we hope to have via Zoom.

We have tried to make up for this by publishing more & larger newsletters for our members.

The Egham-by-Runnymede Historical Society was founded in 1967 to further an interest in local history. We hold talks on local history subjects & sometimes those talks with a wider or more general appeal. These, normally 10 each year, are free to members with non-members paying a small sum, currently £2. Our annual subscriptions are £15 unless you are a senior (£12.50) or junior (£6) and this includes  our newsletters (not the postage which is £6.50).  For 2021/2 we are offering a reduced membership fee of £10 as we cannot hold so many talks.

For a membership leaflet go to Mem Leaflet 2020

Talks are held in the United Church of Egham in the High Street, Egham at 8pm & a list of talks & dates can be found on the Events page.

The Society also publishes books, postcards, cards dealing with local history & also have items such as tea towels, mugs, maps, etc for sale in their shop in The Egham Museum. This is closed due to Covid-19 restrictions at present. If you are wanting to buy items there are details of how to obtain items by post on the Sales page. Alternatively please contact us via
