BBC History Weekend

Fri 06/10/17 2:00 PM - Sun 08/10/17 7:30 PM

An exciting programme of historical talks in The Great Hall and Ashburton Hall.

BBC History Magazine’s History weekend is back this autumn – taking place in the Great Hall and the Ashburton Hall.  For those who attended last year you will recall the fantastic programme of speakers that we had lined up for you.  This year we can confirm that with over 30 speakers taking part, including Dan Jones, David Olusoga and Kathryn Hughes it’s going to be better than ever.

In addition to the lectures you can also buy tickets for Historical city tours, an evening buffet and a pub quiz being held at the Westgate pub. The quiz is being ran by Julian Humphrys and rumour has it some of the historians themselves will be taking part!  To share your passion for the past with fellow history lovers book tickets now.
