Awarded annually for over forty years by a panel of distinguished historians, the Wolfson History Prize has become synonymous with celebrating outstanding history.

At this special event to be held at the British Academy on Wednesday 3 May, authors shortlisted for Britain’s foremost history prize will be discussing their books – and the importance of history – with Rana Mitter FBA, presenter of Free Thinking on BBC Radio 3. 

The event is free to attend but booking is essential through the British Academy.

The event is being recorded for broadcast by BBC Radio 3’s Free Thinking programme. It will be aired on Radio 3 at 10pm on Tuesday 9 May and available as an Arts and Ideas podcast from the Radio 3 website.
