Plymouth’s first-ever History Festival will take place from 1 to 31 May 2013 and aims to highlight Plymouth’s unique history and heritage.

A number of Plymouth City Council departments as well as over 30 different local organisations and heritage providers are contributing to the programme which includes exhibitions and displays, film, music and performance, family activities, talks, presentations, walks and guided tours, plus a host of special events such as Local Studies Day, Family History Day, Archives from the Attic, the Opening Ceremony for Devonport Column and Museums at Night. Don’t leave it too late to book for something you really want to go to!

Additional new events will be added to the site and an official events guide will be available from the Museum, the Barbican Tourist Information Centre and the City’s library network after Easter.
