Formed in March 1998 as the Brighton & Hove Albion Collectors’ and Historians’ Society, we have recently changed name. Our aim is the preservation and promotion of the history of the Albion, and we hope to bring together all those who are interested in every aspect of the football club’s colourful past.


The Society is the main source of information on the history of the club, and is an active force in researching, recording and preserving all aspects of the Albion. It acts as archivists for Brighton & Hove Albion, and is providing the Albion museum at the Amex Stadium.


The Society preserves historic items, holds quarterly meetings, stages popular Albion collectors’ fair and occasional exhibitions, and publishes items of interest to all supporters, including the well-received Albion Programme Collectors Guide. Society members have access to all items, receive quarterly newsletters and enjoy discounts on publications. Members are encouraged to take on projects of interest.


Membership is £10 per year. If you would like to join, please click here to download the form.
