Horological Events Calendar

There are many fascinating events hosted by BHI Branches across the country including talks by professionals and amateurs keen to share their knowledge on a wide variety of subjects. Support your local Branch by attending the meetings and keeping an eye out for auctions and excursions.

We also post listings about upcoming events from the BHI, Museum of Timekeeping and other horological societies and clubs.

If you have an event that you’d like to share here we’d love to hear from you. Rachel Reeves: rachel@bhi.co.uk
