About NELH

Founded in 1967, the North East Labour History Society (NELH) is Britain’s oldest regional labour history society. It is dedicated to the study of working people’s history in the region, particularly during the modern period. We encourage an atmosphere of debate and discussion on both historical and contemporary issues.

The Society is a membership organisation, open to individuals, organisations, libraries and other institutions. Members receive a copy of the society’s journal NELH: North East History plus Newsletters, whose cost is included in the price of membership.

For more information about membership, please see our How to Join page.
