Camden History Society
Camden's local history society has over 350 members. It aims to research and describe the history of institutions, houses, people and social movements within what is now the London Borough of Camden, which includes the old boroughs of Hampstead, St Pancras and Holborn and the districts of Highgate, Kentish Town & Camden Town.
 
The Society has a monthly programme of talks held in different parts of the Borough. Outings are arranged in the summer. Members are encouraged to undertake and publish research themselves, and help and advice are available for beginners. When there is sufficient interest, a group may be formed to study a particular topic or district. The Society has an active publishing arm, with more than 70 publications to its credit since 1970.
 
An illustrated newsletter is distributed free to each member every two months. Subscriptions are due on joining and subsequently on 1st March each year. Members joining after 31st December need not renew their subscriptions on the following 1st March.
 
Sir Christopher Hatton, Elizabeth I's dancing master, who bequeathed his name to Hatton Garden (in the south-east corner of the London Borough of Camden)
