Offering a unique blend of talks, discussions & debates alongside a vast living history through-the-ages encampment and stunning warbird air show, the Chalke Valley History Festival is a celebration of history like no other. Set in fields in south-west Wiltshire, the festival’s home lies in an idyllic part of the world. Here, chalk downs, etched by ancient droves, overlook lush farmland and, during the week-long festival, a large encampment. It is a stunning spot – where an ancient English landscape meets Hardy’s Wessex. And for one week at the end of every June, this normally sleepy corner of England comes alive to the sound of Merlin engines, cannon-fire, muskets and music. Whether young or old, there is much on offer at this truly unique festival of history.
