The BBC’s History Weekend returns to the city later this month and is bigger than ever.

Featuring more than 25 events from leading historians and authors, it is hosted in two beautiful venues – the Yorkshire Museum and the 14th century Hospitium.

Organised by the popular BBC History Magazine, the York line-up includes some leading writers. They include:

  • politician and author Roy Hattersley discussing his new book The Catholics: The Church and its People in Britain and Ireland from the Reformation to the Present Day
  • Hannah Grieg, University of York lecturer in 18th-century British history and historical consultant on the BBC drama Poldark, who will delve into Eighteenth-century Cornwall & the world of Poldark
