Warwick Words History Festival
October 2, 2017 - October 8, 2017
Last year Warwick staged their very first History Festival and were delighted with the fantastic response – not only from our audiences, but also from the many local organisations, public and commercial, which supported them in this new endeavour.
The History Festival 2017 looks certain to be just as successful: guest writers include Sarah Dunant, Lucinda Hawksley, Dan Jones, Alexander McCall Smith, Peter Snow, Charles Spencer and A N Wilson. They will also welcome back Juliet Barker, Janina Ramirez and Alison Weir, who all joined us last year for our inaugural Festival. Our local history project for 2017 is In and Around Warwick, celebrating Warwick and towns in the surrounding area. And the popular series of Tea Time Talks, in association with The University of Warwick, returns this autumn. So find out more about talks, walks, workshops, a Jane Austen Tea in the Ballroom and Jacobean Feast in the Lord Leycester Hospital by clicking here.
