Gloucester History Festival Spring Weekend

21 - 23 April 2023


Over twenty of Britain’s top historians gather in the magical setting of Blackfriars Priory, Gloucester for three days of inspiring events. Join Digging for Britain’s Alice Roberts, Horrible Histories’ Greg Jenner, Raiders of the Lost Past’s Janina Ramirez, The Silk Road’s Peter Frankopan, former Moscow Correspondent Martin Sixsmith and Prisoner of Geography’s Tim Marshall for a weekend of entertaining talks and controversial debates.  

Explore Kings & Queens: a fortnight before the Coronation a dozen monarchs feature in the programme. From Alfred the Great to Elizabeth I, Tutankhamen to the Tudors, where better to explore royalty than in Gloucester where Henry III was crowned? Examine the History of Now: tackle the big issues and understand the history behind events happening today. Russia and Ukraine, Politics and Power and Climate Change through the ages are all up for debate.
