Talgarth & District Historical Society

Talgarth & District Historical Society encourages interest in, and study of, the area's history. It holds monthly meetings from September to June, with speakers covering a wide variety of topics. Other activities include a summer trip, usually relating to a recent talk, and a themed Christmas meal. At the Talgarth Festival the society shows some of its large collection of memorabilia.
