PEN Hessell-Tiltman Prize: David Olusoga at Wimpole History Festival

23 June 2018, 7:30 pm8:30 pm

£10 – £12

‘The past haunts the present in all areas of our national conversation’ so says David Olusoga,  Wimpole History Festival patron and one of our most prominent, engaging and accessible TV historians. His ground-breaking book Black and British was the deserving winner of last year’s PEN Hessell-Tiltman prize. A BBC producer-turned presenter, most recently on our screens in A House Through Time and Civilisations, join Olusoga as he pieces together the threads of Britain’s forgotten past, its contested present and questions for the future.

The winner of the 2018 PEN Hessell-Tiltman Prize will be announced at the end of this event. The shortlist for this year’s prize can be viewed here.
