Plymouth History Festival 2019

Plymouth History Festival 2019 is now over. Huge thanks to everybody who made it possible, from the organising teams to the many expert event providers, and especially to everyone who came and took part.

We’ve enjoyed the sounds and sights of Plymouth’s past to their fullest over the last month. The feedback we’re getting back from visitors is overwhelmingly positive and our most frequent comment is “More of the same, please!”

Stay in touch if you have any ideas or would like to be involved in next year’s festival in any capacity – we look forward to hearing from you at MuseumEvents@plymouth.gov.uk. In the meantime, here are some images to remind you of the great times we’ve had in 2019. Click on them to scroll through at a larger size.
