Seminar Series

We are delighted to announce the new Sport and Leisure History Seminar programme for the first half of 2021. Eight seminars will take place between January and June. You can find a list of speakers on the IHR website here, where you can also register for individual sessions in order to receive a Zoom link.

If you haven't already checked them out, we do publish the seminars as podcasts - so if you are unable to attend, or wish to revisit the topics at any time, you can listen any time on Soundcloud. Click here or search for ‘BSSH London’ to see all available episodes.
