Chalke Valley History Festival have now finalised the 2018 programme tickets for this summer’s festival (on sale 25th April – earlier for Friends).

They’ve also just released a preview of their talks timetable preview, before the full programme goes online. You can download the PDF here.

Some highlights to look forward to

CVHF are thrilled that Simon Schama will be speaking on the Saturday evening, and also to be welcoming both ITN’s political editor, Robert Peston, and the much-loved star of Blackadder, Time Team, et al., Tony Robinson. Professors are coming from universities far and wide –  from Harvard, Columbia, Princeton and North Texas as well as Dublin, St Andrews, Exeter London, Oxford and Cambridge.  CVHF are covering some big anniversaries this year too, not least the centenary of women getting the vote in the UK and the end of the First World War.
