Our programme includes a variety of guided walks, visits, talks by guest speakers and special events. Booking is not usually necessary but where it is required details will be given via this website, our posters and the local press.

Our Joint Programme for 2021

Thanks to a Devon County Council Grant secured with the support of Councillor Colin Slade we have worked in partnership with four other local history groups in the vicinity to set up a joint programme of six Zoom events during 2021. As details of those meetings are confirmed they will be added to the list below.

Please note that if you are on our email list you will be sent the Zoom sign on details shortly before each meeting. If you are NOT on our emailing lists and would like to attend any of these meetings please contact us by email at halbertonhistorygroup (at)

Admission to the joint meetings is free but we will be asking attendees to consider making a voluntary donation in order that we can develop a joint budget in order to pay speakers who charge for their services.
