The newsletter gives you recent and forthcoming news about activities in the local history community.

“Clish-clash” means “repeated gossip” in Scots, and the newsletter passes on information about local history activities.

We aim to issue Clish-Clash bi-monthly, but this depends on the amount of information we receive from members and others.

  • Are any local history events planned in your area? Send us your talks programme.
  • Is your library, museum, or archive opening an exhibition, altering a reading room, organising an event?
  • Has your organisation published something relating to local history, or have you found something of interest? Announcements of recent publications will be in Clish-Clash.

Please note that book reviews and news will still be published in Scottish Local History.
