Gloucester History Festival are delighted to announce a new Festival this Spring in addition to the much loved autumn events, with a view of deepening relationships with history enthusiasts by offering a year round programme.

This decision is following the success of the 2020 festival that reached nearly 11,000 people at home around the world during the two week festival, and a further 9,500 viewers experiencing the festival by watching the recorded talks on demand.

Akin to the 2020 Festival, the spring festival will be presented online – allowing people from around the world to come together virtually and engage with stories and insights of the past. The festival will include special speakers in a selection of talks and City Voices events, offering a taste of history ahead of the main event in September.

This smaller festival will take place in April, with the programme and dates to be announced.
