A wide range of partners across the City work together to deliver the Plymouth History Festival, which is led by Plymouth City Council’s Arts and Heritage Service.

In 2014 and 2015, the Festival was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. We are hugely grateful for this support which has enabled us to establish the Festival as a key feature on the city events calendar.

Through the Arts and Heritage Service the Festival also receives support from Arts Council England.

Many thanks to the many different venues, speakers, tour guides, performers and workshop facilitators that take part each year. We couldn’t do it without you.
