Banbury Historical Society was founded in 1958 by a group of local historians to encourage research into the local history of Banbury town and its hinterland.
They have around 200 members, mostly local but some scattered far and wide. Their annual programme of activities runs from September to July, with lectures from September through to Easter and then a varied programme of outings and expeditions in the summer. The society meet for the lectures at 7.30 pm on the second Thursday of each month in the Education room of Banbury Museum. Members and visitors are made very welcome.

Cake & Cockhorse is a historical publication first published in 1959 and there have been 170 issues since then, with more than 500 articles on the history of Banbury and the surrounding area. The journal goes free to all our members and reflects every aspect of local history. It provides opportunities for our members to share their thoughts or to publish the results of their own researches.
