TV presenter/historian Peter Snow and his wife Ann MacMillan will celebrate the extraordinary wartime experiences of some ordinary men and women. From the terrifying odyssey of John Bulkeley along the remote coast of Chile in 1741 to the heart-stopping escape from Syria of Ahmed Terkawi in 2016, these are people who have pushed the boundaries of love, bravery, suffering and terror.
Holidays in History The Landmark Trust is supporting two of our talks this year. Landmark is a charity that saves extraordinary historic buildings and lets them out for memorable holidays. Their self-catering breaks at cottages, castles and towers across Britain cost on average under £50 per person per night.
