Plymouth History Festival

The Plymouth History Festival 2022 runs until 27th May. This is a chance for residents of Plymouth to explore the City and gain some knowledge and information from those who know. It is a great way to learn more about the place we live in, as well as meeting new people and getting some exercise on the guided walks. This festival gives those involved a chance to share the heritage in our City, how it has changed over time and what is being done to preserve it.
