East Belfast Historical Society

Welcome to the Society!

Established in 1970, the East Belfast Historical Society - also known as EBHS - is one of Northern Ireland's leading local historical societies. We are registered with the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland NIC 103307 and affiliated to the Federation for Ulster Local Studies.


The Society normally meets on the second Thursday of each month from September to May at 7.30pm. Due to the restrictions introduced as a result of the pandemic, meetings have been suspended since March 2020. The date for resumption along with details of the new programme will be posted here in due course.
