Talks are held on the first Wednesday of each month (excluding August) and are held in the
Lower Room at Pontypridd Museum next to the Old Bridge in the town.

 

The talks commence at 7:30 p.m. and usually last around an hour. Non-members of the Society are welcome to
attend at a cost of £2 (Society Membership is £15 a calendar year).

 

Talks focus on social, political, industrial, religious and military history with many talks telling life stories of Welsh
people who have played significant roles in such history within Wales or world-wide.

 

Most talks are delivered using excellent visuals by historians, authors and retired journalists, teachers etc. and
cover a wide range of topics as can be seen on our summary of talks pages of this website.

 

Many of our Speakers are well known in their respective professions and this helps to ensure that the topics
covered are extremely enlightening and informative.

 

Questions from the floor are encouraged and often generate stimulating debate around the topic.
