BBC History Magazine Weekends at Warner Hotels

BBC History Magazine is partnering with Warner Hotels to run a series of special history weekends this year. We will be joined by historical experts such as Tracy Borman, Janina Ramirez, Suzannah Lipscomb and Michael Wood.

The venues for the events are three historic hotels: Littlecote House in Hungerford (where Henry VIII courted Jane Seymour); Holme Lacy House in Herefordshire (visited by King Charles I), and the Gothic revival Studley Castle in Warwickshire.

At each weekend, leading historians will deliver talks and partake in extended Q&A sessions with the audience. There will also be a local history lecture at each weekend, and a fun history quiz to enjoy with members of the BBC History Magazine team. Attendees will also be able to enjoy the facilities at each hotel.
