Description

35th International Churchill Conference

The International Churchill Society is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the 2018 International Churchill Conference, which will be held in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia on November 9–11, 2018. This year’s theme will be “Churchill: Walking with Destiny” and will feature several new and returning faces.

This will be the first conference held in Williamsburg in twenty years. The Williamsburg Lodge will be conference headquarters for panel sessions while other events will take place in and around the historic community. The final day will mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War and will feature a memorial ceremony.

One of the central features of the conference will be the launch of Andrew Roberts’s major new Churchill biography Walking with Destiny. Based on original research in the Royal Archives, this is certain to be the new standard biography for our generation. Andrew will also serve as honorary conference co-chair along with Churchill granddaughter Emma Soames.

First-time conference speakers will include Felix Klos, author of Churchill’s Last Stand: The Struggle to Unite Europe; Daniel Todman, and Edward Lengel. We are also pleased that Sir David Cannadine has agreed once again bring his erudite observations to our conference. Further details will be released in the coming months.

  • Friday, November 9: Opening Reception followed by optional candlelight tour of the Capitol Building

  • Saturday, November 10: Panel sessions and gala dinner
