The show, which takes place in Olympia, London from Friday 22 to Sunday 24 February, has grown over recent years to become the largest genealogy event in the world. As well as expert advice from representatives from leading institutions including The National Archives and the Society of Genealogists, visitors will be able to attend workshops on a range of subjects throughout the course of the three days.

There will also be the chance to hear first-hand some of the stories from behind the popular television series, as participants from this year’s series, including John Barnes, Masterchef presenter Gregg Wallace and Coronation Street actor William Roache, take to the stage to share their experiences.
