Festival for Schools 2021
There will not be a physical festival for schools this year.
Instead, we will be filming talks and living historians over the festival weekend, as well as others remotely, so edited versions will be available to schools from the beginning of the autumn term providing a long-term free digital resource.
We are immensely grateful to the following for supporting this digital project:
THE CALLEVA TRUST
THE ADRIAN SWIRE CHARITABLE TRUST
THE GOLDSMITHS’ COMPANY CHARITY
THE CHILTON FOUNDATION
The aim of the Chalke Valley History Festival for Schools is to excite, inspire and enthuse pupils about history. It is a very important part of our festival week and for three days we provide a wide range of curriculum-based subjects, drawing on leading historians, inspirational communicators, and the very best living historians around.
Bringing together the greatest historians, academics, living historians and TV personalities to educate on curriculum-based subjects, the Festival for Schools excites, inspires and enthuses about history.
