The Huntingdonshire History Festival will be returning July 2019 with an even bigger programme of events. The first festival this year was based solely in Huntingdon and included reenactments, guided walks, lectures, childrens activities and film nights as part of a calendar of thirty free events, which over 5,000 residents and visitors attended.
The 2019 festival is looking to expand to include events in St. Neots, St. Ives, Ramsey and other towns and villages throughout Huntingdonshire, including large scale reenactments, ghost walks and a large scale 60ft Lego installation running the length of Huntingdon library’s window.
The Huntingdonshire History Festival committee invites the public to attend the organisations first Annual General Meeting. The AGM will be held in the Assembly Room, Huntingdon Town Hall on Wednesday 5th December at 6.15pm, where there will be an opportunity to hear in detail about the plans for next year and talk with trustees about how to get involved.
Festival Secretary, Matthew Callen, says: “we are really looking forward to working with interested parties in places throughout Huntingdonshire to grow the festival next year and showcase the wonderful local history which is right on our doorstep.”
