The Daily Mail Chalke Valley History Festival will again bring history to life in the picturesque village of Broad Chalke, near Salisbury, in Wiltshire.
With over 130 top-class speakers and the very best living historians in the land, the Festival is the biggest annual celebration of history in the UK, and is set to inspire, excite and inform all those who attend.
Some of the new introductions this year are the ‘Live History Live’ programme, ‘Chalke Valley History Heroes’ celebration, fireworks at the Forties Fever Party and for three days, running alongside the main programme is the Chalke Valley History Festival for Schools. The school festival sees thousands of pupils from a large cross-section of schools in the UK, from primary school to sixth formers, visit on special days dedicated to different year groups. This section of the event will provide a wide range of curriculum-based subjects, drawing on leading historians, inspirational communicators, and the very best living historians around. The focus is on getting out of the classroom and bringing history to life in new and exciting ways. Visit outside of school with events like Into the White, Explorer Dinosaurs, Legends of Arthur, A Disgusting Look at History, In the mouth of a Wolf, Discworld: Shed of Doom, Creative History Tent, History Tellers, Sword School and the First World War Trench.
With a new enlarged programme for 2018, this weekend is full of exciting activities for all ages, and with many historians appearing for the first time, there will be something for everyone. For all event details go to: www.cvhf.org.uk 25 June -1 July.
