2020 Festival cancelled

It is with very heavy hearts that we have had to pull the plug on the Festival taking place this June. Sadly, events have taken such a dramatic turn with the COVID-19 virus, that it is simply no longer possible to hold it as planned.

We cannot thank you enough for your enormous support of the Festival over recent years and we are truly sorry it cannot take place this summer, our tenth anniversary year. The programme was due to go to print this week, and we have all been especially excited about it, believing it the best ever. For interest, we are posting it online as a PDF.

For those who bought gift vouchers, we really appreciate your support and please be assured they will be automatically extended for an additional year. Anyone who bought camping / glamping will be refunded in the next 14 days.

We are, of course, looking into alternative ways of continuing our mission to promote the understanding and enjoyment of history to the widest possible audience, and will keep you updated as and when we have more news. Please do keep an eye on or social media channels and this website for more.

In the meantime, please do keep safe and we all look forward to seeing you again at next year’s Festival.
