Buckinghamshire Archives bringing history home with ‘virtual festival’ for all ages

The popular annual history festival from Buckinghamshire Archives is going entirely online for 2020, with speakers from around the world lined up to provide a weekend of fascinating content. 

For the last few years, the archives service has held a festival of history talks in the autumn. 

This year it will look a little different, with speakers appearing by video, podcast, blog articles, and on social media.

The virtual festival will be on the 12th and 13th of September, and will feature talks by:-

  • Adrian Tinniswood – on the Verneys of Claydon Manor
  • Ian Beckett – on the Buckinghamshire Home Guard
  • Jane Robinson – on pioneering women professionals. 

All content will be available on the history festival’s new easy-to-use website:


As well as on their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages.
