Celebrating the authors and genre of historical writing, this unique weekend allowed readers to meet, discuss and discover historical writing from fact through to fiction. The Harrogate History Festival invited readers to delve into the past to explore and grapple with leading literary minds on some of the most gripping conflicts, personalities and epic tales in human history. Past programmes have included such literary luminaries as Philippa Gregory, Bernward Cornwell, Sandi Toksvig, Lord Melvyn Bragg, Michael Morpurgo, Peter Snow and Elizabeth Chadwick.
