“Our Local History Society helps you find more about Barnet’s past and meet other people who enjoy history.
Barnet Record Society was formed in 1927 after a group of local people became concerned that Barnet’s past was being lost and decided to start a collection of documents and objects relating to the history of Barnet and the surrounding areas. The Society’s first exhibition was held in the Barnet Council Chamber. However, as the years passed, the collection grew, and on 19 March 1938 it was given a permanent home at 31 Wood Street, where it has remained. After discovering that people thought the word ‘record’ indicated a music society, the name was changed in 1967 to Barnet & District Local History Society. It is now ‘Barnet Museum and Local History Society’.”

“The Mill Hill Music Club was founded in 1955 by Mr Wilfred Ransom who at that time was deputy manager of Barclays Bank in Swiss Cottage. He had interviewed a concert pianist who couldn’t quite manage to clear his overdraft and Wilfred, being a member of Toc H, staged a recital, the pianist paid off his overdraft and the Mill Hill Music Club was founded and has become one of the most prestigious music clubs in London, if not in the country.
The following years were exciting. Musicians such as the Amadeus Quartet who were in their early days in their career gave many concerts. The then young Vladimir Ashkenazi gave his first U.K. recital when he came to London. Arthur Rubenstein told his agent always to book him for “Hill Mill”. Kiri Te Kanawa stepped in at short notice to replace another singer who was unwell, and Alfred Brendel, Radu Lupu, Jacqueline du Pre, Isaac Stern, Pinchas Zuckerman Moieseiwitch have been among the many distinguished names who have performed.
In recent years we have been privileged to hear some of the world’s finest soloists, ensembles and a host of very talented newcomers to the music world. To name a few, the Israel Piano Trio, ConTempo String Quartet, Chilingirian Quartet, Mitsuko Uchida, Tacacs String Quartet, Artur Pizarro, Idil Biret, Emma Johnson, Yevgeny Subdin, Jerusalem Quartet and the Aviv Quartet.
The Club is always looking for new members and helpers and if you would like to offer your services we will be delighted to hear from you.”
