The story of the
Salisbury History Festival
In 2018, Frogg Moody decided to organise a History Festival to
celebrate Salisbury and its People. At a time when Salisbury was
still in shock from the now notorious chemical attack, this first
Festival took everyone by surprise with all the events sold out and
earning very complimentary comments from many people including
Salisbury MP John Glen. So thank you to all the speakers, helpers
and attendees who made that first festival successful!
And so to 2019. The celebration of Salisbury’s fascinating history
and heritage will feature many different events including exhibitions,
guided walks and tours, talks and presentations, a mock trial, local
historical films, a school writing competition and special events.
Since last year, Frogg has worked tirelessly to make the 2019
History Festival even bigger and he has introduced two new people
to his team. Sally Lloyd and Ruby Vitorino are equally as passionate
about Salisbury history and together, the team believe this second
festival will be a real winner!
