Warwick Words festival-goers promised a trip back in time

HISTORY buffs are in for a treat at this year’s Warwick Words Festival.

The festival next month boasts a mix of talks, walks and tours spanning 2,000 years of history from the Romans to the Windsors.

Guest speakers include Tracy Borman, Alison Weir, James Holland, Janina Ramirez, Michael Scott, Nicola Tallis and Dermot Turing.

The programme also features a new series of the popular Tea Time Talks, in association with the University of Warwick.

Festival executive director Helen Meeke said: “We’re sure festival-goers will find something to enjoy whatever their interest as we journey back to early medieval Britain, Warwick in the 11th century, Tudor England and war-torn Europe in the 20th century. Warwick Words is one of Warwick District Council’s four creative partners and we are grateful for the council’s continuing support.”

Warwick Words History Festival takes place from October 2 to October 8. The festival’s main venue this year is once again Castle Hill Baptist Church.

Tickets for all events are now on sale either online at www.warwickwords.co.uk, by calling the box office on 01926 33 44 18, or in person at Leamington and Warwick Visitor Information Centres.
