About

The International Living History Festival (ILHF) is a growing event, it has grown from just a market to a Festival over a number of years and we have now opened it up to the Public to enjoy.

The ILHF was very warmly received by the public and we have had some fantastic reviews from the first event held back in 2016. With 50 Traders, 9 Groups and a series of audience participation/Have a go fun made it enjoyable for all.

2017 we were building on the fantastic foundations that have been laid – and proving that 2017 was even bigger and better.

2018 proved even more popular with 16 groups and 35 plus traders.

2019 was the best yet, with 29 Living History Groups and 50 traders. With the success this year of the Festival, the dates have now been confirmed for April 18th – 19th 2020

2020 WAS CANCELLED – this was due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.

2021 WAS CANCELLED – this is due to the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic.

2022 GREAT NEWS – confirmed date is April 9th – 10th. If you were booked in for 2019 to 2021, you will be contacted to see if you would like to attend. For all those traders who had paid a pitch fee to trade, you should have received an E-Mail asking if you wanted a refund, or for the booking to be carried over until 2022. If not – please get in contact ASAP with Dave on pikeandshotevents@livinghistoryfestival
