150th Anniversary of Sir Winston Churchill's Birth


Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill was born at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire on St Andrew’s Day, 30 November 1874. On his father’s side, he was a child of the aristocracy; his father was the Conservative politician Lord Randolph Henry Spencer-Churchill. His mother was the American-born beauty Jennie Jerome, daughter of a New York stockbroker, financier and newspaper proprietor Leonard Jerome.


Focussing on the renewal of democratic societies, states, markets and alliances Ditchley’s approach aims to build new common ground so that we can move toward solutions to complex problems. The Foundation believes that change is driven, and managed, by personal relationships, not reports or declarations. We engage local and global communities over time rather than chase headlines. We are not tied to the agenda of any government, political party or commercial interest. We are dedicated to creating space and time for deep reflection, sharing ideas and making new connections across divides at a time when our systems find this difficult and our challenges are interconnected. In an inspiring place the combination of cutting edge technology and the inspiration of our heritage and history helps enable spirited but respectful discussion across divisions of expertise, geography, generations and political opinion.

‘The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you can see’ -Winston Churchill

We work constantly to get better at this, harnessing the power of tradition and innovation in equal measure. No one leaves Ditchley without thinking new things.
