The Historiographers began life on social media back in 2012. They formed as a group that would share interesting history articles and details of upcoming events from various heritage groups and organisations between its members.

In late 2016, the group made the decision to produce their first short documentary ‘He Who Fathered Christmas’, which was awarded semi-finalist at the Sydney Indie Film Festival in 2017.

During the 2020 lockdowns, the group produced a podcast/video series about the more peculiar parts of history entitled ‘Past Quirks’, in an effort to promote and raise money for various charities and heritage groups. Since then, they have released ‘Love History? So Do We!’ – a web series about the history of the north-west, its heritage attractions and their journey to date.

Alongside fundraisers, the Historiographers currently conduct historical, costumed walking tours. Mixing live roleplaying with historical research, the group present local history as told through the eyes of ordinary folk in the street. Why not explore the Chester of 1603 on a Tudor & Stuart Tour or Lancaster in 1803 on a Georgian & Regency Tour? Every time you purchase a ticket, you are helping to maintain some truly incredible historic buildings.
