The dates for the 2019 History Festival have been confirmed and next year’s event will run from Saturday 4 to Friday 31 May.
This will be the seventh year in a row that the festival has taken place with the aim of highlighting Plymouth’s diverse history and heritage.
Since it began in 2013 the festival has featured hundreds of events which have been attended by thousands of local residents and visitors. From talks, guided walks and behind the scenes tours, to performances, family activities, exhibitions and displays – there’s always something for everyone on the jam packed programme.
Entries for the festival programme are now open and can be submitted up to 6pm on January 31, 2019.
Celebrating Plymouth is always the central theme of the festival. For 2019, event providers are also being asked to consider the themes of ‘Empowerment’, ‘Journeys’ and ‘The Great Outdoors’.
To submit an event send the title, date(s), start and finish times, venue address including a postcode, booking information, a contact number and/or email address and event description to [email protected]
Councillor Peter Smith, Deputy Leader said: “It’s great to be able to confirm next year’s History Festival which goes from strength to strength each year. Plymouth has such an amazing history and the festival programme always gives people a chance to discover more about it. I hope as many organisations, societies and individuals as possible will get involved and am looking forward to the 2019 festival being a big success.”
