Friends of Hackney Archives
The Friends of Hackney Archives was formed in 1985 to support the work of the Archives. It offers a means for all who are interested in Hackney history to keep in touch with the growth of the collection.
It provides practical support when needed, in expressing the views of users to the Council, and administering a donations fund, which has assisted in purchasing new material for the collection, including two important collections of theatre posters.
Members receive the Archives’ regular newsletter, The Hackney Terrier, and the Friends’ journal, Hackney History. We arrange visits and other meetings from time to time.
Anyone can join. Membership is £15 per calendar year in the UK, £30 overseas, plus £3 for each additional member at the same address. We send one mailing per household.
To join, please print, complete and send us the form below with the appropriate amount in sterling to ‘Friends of Hackney Archives’
