The start line in sight

It’s amazing how fast time flies – but there are now just two weeks to go until this year’s Plymouth History Festival begins!

This year’s programme is packed with great events, our colourful brochures have been distributed across the city, artwork for two giant billboards has gone off to the printers and the invitations to the launch event went out this morning. Exciting stuff!

Don’t forget to check out the full programme on the website and book as soon as possible for any events that you’re interested in. We’ll be posting more regularly from now as we build up to 1 May and beyond!
