Warwick Words History Festival

WW History 2019 Cover 600

We are so sorry to announce that, as a consequence of the continuing Government regulations on social distancing imposed in response to COVID, we are unable to host the new Spring into History Festival planned for March.

This has been a very difficult decision again for us, but our foremost concern is that we should not put anyone's health at risk, whether it be your health - our audience - or that of our authors, volunteers or any of the personnel at the venues hosting our events. We are sure that you will understand this decision, which we know will be disappointing for many of you.

The good news is that we are currently planning the Autumn Festival, which will be held from 4 to 10 October, with pre-Festival events on 1 October.

We are delighted to announce that the following authors have already confirmed that they will be joining us in October: Dan Jones, Alison Weir, Charles Spencer, Tracy Borman, Nicola Tallis, Ghee Bowman, Lauren Johnson, Lesley Smith and Greg Jenner.

If you can't wait until then we have re-released the seven local talks, Soundbites of Warwick, from last year's Digital Festival on our Events page on our website.

In the meantime, many thanks for your continued support, please stay safe and healthy and we very much look forward to welcoming you in person at the Festival in October.
