Plymouth History Festival is over for another year but we just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who has attended our events. We hope you’ve enjoyed everything you’ve been to and thank you for your support. A huge thanks also to all our partners – we couldn’t do it without you :)

Coming to an end

It’s the final day for this year’s Festival today. We hope you have a good one whatever you’re up to :)

Final day events

Well, here we are – previewing the final day of this year’s History Festival. To round off the month there are tours of the Distillery, Synagogue and Citadel taking place tomorrow. There’s also another ‘1215 Plymouth, Pilgrims and Knights’ walk around Sutton Harbour and The Barbican, a talk about ‘Lost Churches of Plymouth’ and a special event called ‘Your History, Your Heritage…..Uncovered’ at Devonport Guildhall.

What’s on this Saturday?

We’ve reached the final weekend of this year’s Festival and on Saturday we have lots of exhibitions, displays and installations on offer as well as ‘A Short Walk to No Place’ starting at Victoria Park and a ‘Garden Discovery Tour’ at Saltram.

Only three days left!

Just three more days left of this year’s Festival! Where does the time go? On Friday we have a talk at the Devonport Naval Heritage Centre called ‘Sail to Steam: The Industrialisation of Craftsmen’ and a ‘Plymouth Blitz Walk and Talk’ as well as many exhibitions on display across the city.

Busy, busy Thursday

We’ve got a busy programme tomorrow with a family workshop at Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery, tours of the Prysten House, St Andrews Minster Church, the Distillery and the Citadel. Exhibitions, installations, displays, an organ recital at St Andrews and a talk about ‘Plymouth’s Tudor Wreck’ at the Roland Levinsky Building are also planned.

The sun is shining

It’s lovely weather for a tour of the Devonport Naval Heritage Centre this evening! A talk about ‘The Growth of Plymouth During Medieval Times’ at Ford Park Cemetery and a ‘Blackbooks Poetry’ session at the Mayflower Pub are also running later today!

Exhibitions, tours and talks

Exhibitions about Devonport, Stonehouse, the 5th Earl of Saltram, the History of Plymouth, portraiture, photography, contemporary art and Napoleon Bonaparte are all on display at various venues across the city tomorrow. Tours of the Distillery and garden buildings at Saltram and talks about WWII and Dame Agnes Weston also feature on the programme.
