From walks to talks to Open House, there's plenty happening at BHS in the second half of 2022!

Let our knowledgeable volunteers take you on a stroll through Brighton's past in our 2022 walking tours.

Billilla will soon reopen its doors to the Bayside public, and the Council is looking to the community for input on its future use.

Since we can't meet in person, we're bringing our Pub to Pub walking tour to you online as part of the Bayside Seniors Healthy Ageing Festival.

Join us in July and August for guided walking tours through Middle Brighton and a talk with author Laraine Stephens about her locally-based historical novel, The Death Mask Murders.

BHS is now open to volunteers and visitors by appointment on Mondays and Thursdays between 12pm and 4pm.

If you'd like to drop in to see us, please give us a call on 9553 8650 or send us an email via our contact form. This will help us to maintain a COVID-safe environment for everyone.

We'll continue to give updates on any changes to our opening hours through the website and social media, and as always, if you have any niggling local history questions or tidbits to share, you can reach us via email or Facebook.

We hope all of our members and friends are enjoying a happy and safe start to 2021. At present, we are preparing to reopen to the public at the beginning of February with appropriate COVID-safe precautions, circumstances permitting. We are aware that things can change quickly in our present climate and will continue to listen to public health advice to ensure the safety of our volunteers and visitors.

We'll continue to give updates on any changes to our opening hours through the website and social media, and as always, if you have any niggling local history questions or tidbits to share, you can reach us via email, Facebook and our website contact form.
