Bromyard History Society is opening a new shop in the town centre.

It is hoped History on Broad Street will become a hub for historians, a platform for local producers and a social gathering point in Bromyard.

The shop will be filled with displays featuring Bromyad’s history as well as host events and activities put on by the society.

It will feature a coffee corner, unique Bromyard merchandise, and will shine a light on artisan producers.

Freelancers and remote workers will also be welcome to use the shop’s co-working space.

Sue Cooper, chairman of Bromyard History Society said: “Now is an exciting time to be starting a new venture in Bromyard.

“Think of 12 Broad Street not as a shop but as a window on the history society.

“This is our opportunity to put ourselves in the centre of town, to promote all the activities of the Society and to entice more visitors to Bromyard to visit our history centre.”

“History on Broad Street is not just about celebrating the town's history; it's about promoting its 

significance in both the past and the future. By creating a welcoming space for locals and tourists alike.

“It fosters a sense of community and curiosity, drawing people together to explore and 

appreciate Bromyard's heritage.

“What happens today is the history of tomorrow.”

A grand opening for the new shop will take place on Thursday, September 14.

Bromyard History Society was founded in 1966 and organises a programme of events that take place throughout the year.

Upcoming events include Stephen and Matilda’s Civil War on October 11. Matt Lewis is speaking about the first civil war in post-conquest England, which happened during the reign of King Stephen between 1135 and 1154.

This starts at 7.30pm at the Conquest Theatre.

At the same venue on November 8, there’ll be a screening of a vintage pre-war film, the story of Brooklands motor racing circuit from 1907 to 1939.
