No subject in American History, aside from Lincoln and the American Civil War, has been more discussed in books, articles or sung of than Custer and the Battle of the Little Bighorn. For a small battle relative to European standards, its rippling effects were felt far beyond 1876 and the Montana Territory – even unto today! Chaz Mena will talk about the biggest upset in U.S. military history, and perhaps the climax in the annals of the American West. This event will be held at the Storage Works Speakers Corner tent.

Outdoor Programme Event

The Outdoor Programme daily ticket gives you access to everything on the festival's massive Outdoor Programme.

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).

£15.00
£9.00
£45.00

THIS IS AN OUTDOOR PROGRAMME EVENT. ONLY A SINGLE OUTDOOR PROGRAMME TICKET PER PERSON PER DAY IS REQUIRED.

If you have a ticket for a tented talk the same day, there is no need to buy an additional Outdoor Programme ticket.
