The Place to Find All Things Churchill

See Gary Oldman as Churchill Special Screening of “Darkest Hour” to be held at 34th International Churchill Conference in New York City

Two New Events Added to the Conference Schedule

Guests attending the 2017 Churchill Conference will have the opportunity to attend an early screening of the film Darkest Hour starring Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill. The film will not be released in theaters until November 22nd, so this will be a special treat. We are still confirming the time and location of the screening, so please keep an eye out for a separate email detailing this exciting development. The conference will take place at the J. W. Marriott Essex House in New York City next October 10, 11, and 12. Follow this link to register today.

Darkest Hour depicts Churchill’s early days as Prime Minister in the spring of 1940 when France was collapsing and the British Empire was left to face Nazi Germany on its own. The screening will take place on the evening of the first day of the conference following a reception at the Essex House.

Also just added to the first day of the conference will be a tour of the famous Green-wood Cemetery in Brooklyn. Green-wood is the site of the Jerome Vault, the final resting place of Winston Churchill’s American grandparents Leonard and Clara Jerome. Other dignitaries buried at the historic cemetery include Leonard Bernstein, Henry Steinway, and the parents of Theodore Roosevelt.

This is a complimentary tour for Blenheim Package registrants, who will have exclusive access to tickets until July 31. On August 1, any remaining tickets will be opened to the public at $100/person. An email will be sent to all Blenheim Package buyers privately to register for the tour. A coach will leave the Essex House at 11:00 am to arrive at Green-wood at 12:30 pm. The tour lasts until 2:30pm when the coach will return all attendees to the Essex House.
