About The Buckingham Festival

Buckingham History Festival presents Britain’s leading professional historians – fine communicators who are also great scholars, not simply writers about the past. It is for everyone with an intelligent interest in history, and is staged in the beautiful market-town of Buckingham, with Stowe House, one of England’s greatest historic houses, and its Classically-inspired gardens on its doorstep. It is entirely free of people in period costume, battle re-enactments, and morris dancers. But it does offer great speakers, new historical discoveries, and exciting ideas.
