The Chelsea History Festival is back! World-class speakers will bring the past to life from the heart of London with over 70 exciting physical and virtual events.

Highlights include Olivette Otele and Peter Frankopan considering the challenges of telling stories of people and places that are often overlooked, and Jonathan Dimbleby with Andrew Roberts discussing Operation Barbarossa.

The festival also features a number of exclusive pre-publication launches with Helen Fry, Robert Lyman and James Holland.
