Ukrainian born historian, Dr Olesya Khromeychuk,

The 2022 Festival was a great success - don't take our word for it but listen to the views of our attendees: "The talks were brilliant"; "Well organised and a friendly reception"; "Good variety of walks and talks"; "Extremely well organised and planned events"; "Good company". 100% of the respondents to our survey said they would recommend the Festival to a friend.

We hope to see you in Richmond this September.
