Dinner in the Blenheim Palace Orangery
The 32nd International Churchill Conference will take place in Oxfordshire from 26-29 May. On the evening of Thursday the 28th there will be a Pol Roger Reception at Blenheim Palace followed by dinner in the Orangery. Our host will be His Grace the Duke of Marlborough. The Hon. Celia Sandys and Mr Robert Hardy CBE will speak. Coaches to and from conference headquarters at the Heythrop Park Hotel will be provided.
Blenheim Palace is the Churchill ancestral home and where Winston Churchill was born in 1874. Built as a gift from the nation for John Churchill (the first Duke of Marlborough), the estate is named for the location in southern Germany where the Duke prevailed over a French and Bavarian army during the War of the Spanish Succession. Winston Churchill returned to his birthplace many times throughout his life especially when he was writing the biography of his ancestor the first Duke.
On Wednesday the 27th those attending the conference will be able to spend the day at Blenheim touring the Palace and the grounds as well as visiting the Temple of Diana where Winston Churchill proposed to his wife Clementine in 1908.
