Hi everyone! Welcome to the official Reading University History Society page. As a committee we have all loved being part of this society and feel it has made our time at university way more enjoyable, giving us the chance to meet loads of new people, go on fun nights out and even go on a trip abroad. We want to keep the society going, building on membership; creating more events that all members of the society can enjoy. We are also really excited to organise a trip abroad, following on from a great trip to Krakow this year, where we spent 3 days in the city exploring lots of historical sights as well as going on a rather eventful bar crawl.

Our committee are all keen to create a trip this year that is just as fun jam packed, as well as loads of socials throughout the year, from themed nights out to sunny day trips.

The 6 of us look forward to meeting you all and welcoming new members into our society.

Feel free to drop us and email and check out our facebook page for info on our socials and other events!
