BHI Branches

From Manchester to overseas

The first BHI branch was established in Manchester shortly after the Second World War. It was an initiative that was quickly replicated up and down the country. More recently we have even begun to see BHI branches established overseas.

BHI branches are entirely autonomous. They are set up ‘by the members for the members’, invariably rely for their existence on the energy and commitment of a few committed volunteers, and succeed (and occasionally fail) accordingly. If you are lucky enough to live within reasonable travelling distance of a vibrant BHI branch you should try sampling one of their events. You will always find a warm welcome.

For specific branch activity, see BHI Branch Events.
