Bangor University’s first Four Nations History Festival was deemed a resounding success with students, alumni and members of the community enjoying two days of history-related talks in Pontio and Bangor Cathedral.
Guests listened to talks on an array of subjects over the two days, and keynote lectures by renowned historians and BBC regulars David Olusoga, David Starkey and Lucy Worsley were sold out. Attendees also had the opportunity to speak to local and national history groups to learn about their projects in the festival’s exhibition space.
We were delighted to welcome local secondary school students to attend some of the lectures and visit the School of History, Philosophy and Social Sciences where they learnt more about the academic work taking place there. Primary school students were treated to a show by drama company ‘In Character’ on Owain Glyndwr in Bangor Cathedral.
It was a great event and we hope that you can join us next time!
Here are some photos from the weekend.
