Friday 7 to Sunday 30 May 2021.

This year the Plymouth History Festival will explore the theme of Wellbeing.

For the last seven years, the Plymouth History Festival has featured hundreds of events which have been attended by thousands of residents and visitors.

These have ranged from talks, guided walks and behind the scenes tours, to performances, family activities, exhibitions and displays, all designed to inform and entertain by engaging the public in Plymouth’s heritage.

The Plymouth History Festival 2021 will reconnect us to each other and our heritage. With a focus on “Wellbeing” this year’s festival will champion community connection and work to help us all reconnect with our history digitally and in a covid secure manner at The Box and across Plymouth.

This year’s festival will run over four weeks from the 7th May to the 30th May with a series of exciting events brought to you from local heritage groups and The Box.

We have a series of live interactive talks and events and we would love you to take part in our wide ranging and inclusive programme. Each week we will host varied events from talks to walks, all encompassing the Wellbeing theme of the week.

Launch Weekend (7-9 May): Community
Week 2 (10-16 May): Identity
Week 3 (17-23 May): Speaking Out
Week 4 (24-30 May): Learning
