The Daily Mail Chalke Valley History Festival is now the largest festival in the world devoted entirely to History and is the only festival to combine living history entertainment and flypasts with literary talks and panels.
“We all thought that this was the best festival yet. The organisation was immaculate and being a sponsor was the icing on the cake.” GP
Our speakers are of an immensely high calibre and have included Niall Ferguson, Antony Beevor, Kate Adie, Mark Knopfler, Ian Kershaw, Jung Chang, Michael Morpurgo, Monty Don, Bettany Hughes, Dan Snow, Boris Johnson, Andrew Marr, WW2 fighter pilots, D-Day veterans and many others covering a wide range of topics which are complemented by the living history exhibitions, ancillary tents and stalls. In the evenings there is a long break for an excellent supper in the Dining Tent when the speakers, sponsors and their guests as well as much of the audience congregate.
“The green room was perfect, the food was great, the talks I saw were all very good, the planes were spiffing and the kids were rewarding. Congratulations” Sebastian Faulks
