Aspects of History Summer Festival

Over each evening, from June 7th – 10th, our editor, Oliver Webb-Carter, will interview four of our historians about their latest books and future projects.

We have arranged a high quality line-up of Charles Spencer, Helen Fry, Saul David and Giles Milton.

Tune-in each evening at 19:00 on our YouTube Channel, which you’ll also be able to access on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to watch each interview.

To ask a question, please sign up to our mailing list at Aspects of History, send your question to history@aspectsofhistory.com and our editor will put the question to each author, time permitting. The authors will also be available afterwards to answer questions via Twitter.

Events are free.

You can support the festival by taking out an annual subscription to the Aspects of History magazine for just £9.99/$9.99, or sign-up to our mailing list for free content and book giveaways.
