Chalke Valley History Festival

Pupils who are studying History at Alleyn’s spent a fabulous day in the sunshine surrounded by all things History. From taking part in a WW1 trench experience to sampling food from different centuries, everyone had a new experience and returned home all the more enthused in the subject!

As one Year 12 said:

“This was probably the best school trip I’ve ever done!”

The aim of the annual festival, which takes place in Broadchalke, Near Salisbury, is to excite, enthral and entertain about the past. All proceeds from the festival go to the Chalke Valley History Trust, which promotes the understanding of history to all ages, but especially children.
