36. THE LOST VIRTUE OF MANLINESS
Patrick Cordingley, Joanna Grochowicz
Wednesday 22nd June 14:00 (60 Min)
History Hit Outdoor Stage
Without doubt, a seismic shift has occurred in our cultural ideas of manliness and its heroic allure. In today’s environment, celebrating the exploits of white men conquering new lands seems deeply unfashionable at best and self-sabotage at worst. And yet our appetite for tales of heroics is still as voracious as ever. Joanna Grochowicz and Patrick Cordingley discuss the challenges of contextualising manliness and the importance of celebrating historical representations of men behaving bravely on the ice and on the battlefield.

Outdoor Programme Event

The Outdoor Programme daily ticket gives you access to everything on the festival's massive Outdoor Programme. The child ticket is applicable for ages 5-15; Under 5’s are free

We have talks on the IPGL and History Hit Outdoor Stages, the Living History encampments and static displays, Speaker's Corner talks, performances from the History Tellers and others, live music, two bars, the Emporium, book shops and numerous cafes and food stalls. Anyone with an Outdoor Programme ticket can access up to twenty-five different scheduled events on any one day, so it is truly great value.

For those wishing to experience The Trench, Sword School and Children's Creative History events, these are ticketed separately and need to be pre-booked. Rides on the Vintage Fairground are payable at the ride.

Tickets to individual events in the Hiscox and Smith & Williamson tents also provide access to the Outdoor Programme on that particular day (1 person per ticket).
