Welcome to the Leicestershire & Rutland branch of The Western Front Association. 


The Leicestershire & Rutland Branch meets on the third Monday of each month.

Any changes to a meeting date will usually be communicated by email and through the Branch newsletter The Tiger.

We meet in The Council Chamber at the Braunstone Civic Centre, Kingsway, Braunstone Town, Leicester LE3 2PP. There is free parking on site. 

Meetings start at 7.00pm (for 7.30pm) and usually finish at around 9.45pm.

We welcome all WFA members and non-members to our meetings. There is no need for anyone to be, or become, a member of The Western Front Association. 

At present, we do not charge an attendance fee but do suggest a voluntary contribution of £3 per person to cover venue and guest speaker costs.

We aim to offer an extremely interesting and diverse programme of external and internal guest speakers from January to December.

The Branch's year runs from 1 November to 31 October and the AGM is normally held at either the November or December meeting.

We run a popular raffle during the interval at each Branch meeting with a strip of tickets costing just £1.

Refreshments are available from the venue's pay bar on arrival and also during a short break at the mid-point of the guest speaker's talk which is usually at around 8.15pm.

Our meetings conclude by remembering the service of individual men and women from Leicestershire and Rutland in World War One.
