CVHF Spitfires

Last weekend we felt very honoured to be invited to the Chalk Valley History Festival as guest of James Holland; the esteemed author and historian.  James had very kindly given a talk at Tyntesfield and we were delighted to return the favour and make the trip to Shaftsbury.  Blessed with beautiful weather, set in beautiful surroundings we were spoilt with an amazing air display on the Saturday afternoon and hundred of reenactors of all periods.

Sponsored by Waterstones and the Daily Mail, the main focus of the event was the lectures given by visiting speakers.  The list of high profile authors, historians and TV presenters is endless; even the Mayor of London gave an enthusiastic and entertaining lecture.  Overall it was a very interesting weekend which offered something a little different.  If you want to learn more visit the CVHF website because I very much hope we are invited back next year.
