Warwick Words Digital History Festival

From 05/10/2020 to 11/10/2020

Various venues in Warwick

We are so very sorry to announce that, as a consequence of Government regulations on social distancing imposed in response to Covid-19, we are unable to host this year’s History Festival in October as originally planned.

This has been a very difficult decision for us, but our foremost concern is that we should not put anyone’s health at risk, whether it be our audience – or that of our authors, sponsor partners, volunteers or any of the personnel at the venues hosting our events. We are sure that you will understand this decision, which we know will be disappointing for many of you.

In place of our planned programme of events, however, we are delighted to announce that Warwick Words History Festival 2020 will be going digital, bringing you seven days of exciting events free online, starting on 5 October.

We have a fabulous programme of talks lined up, including some very special guests and a new initiative, Soundbites of Warwick. The full programme of digital events will be released in September.

In the meantime, many thanks for your continuing support, please stay safe and healthy and we very much look forward to welcoming you to our
