The 2024 International Churchill Conference will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Sir Winston Churchill. Appropriately, the conference will be held in London, where Churchill lived, worked and died. Events will include a visit to Blenheim Palace, where Churchill was born in 1874. Registration will open on January 15th, but you can sign up for a reminder now by CLICKING HERE.
Winston Churchill would have been a Londoner born and bred if he had not been so impatient to enter the grand stage of life. Preparations for his birth were being made at his parents’ London address, but the baby crowded his way on stage prematurely at Blenheim Palace on 30 November 1874. Churchill’s following ninety year association with London is one of the subjects addressed in the current issue of Finest Hour, which is on the theme “Churchill and England.”
Events at this year’s conference will include activities at Dartmouth House, the home of the English-Speaking Union, as well as the National Gallery. The International Churchill Society (ICS) will also be developing a program in conjunction with its new partner the Royal United Services Institute. Details and updates about the conference will be posted here and on the ICS website during the coming months.
