This year the Festival returns, running from the 22 – 26 September 2021 with the aim of bringing people back safely to the Royal Hospital Road and the mission of creating a stage in the heart of Chelsea for world class speakers, authors and performers who entertain, inspire and educate through the power of local, national and global history. In addition to its speaker programme the festival will grow its outdoor offer in order to appeal to a wider audience of families, history lovers and supporters from the local community. The Festival will also maintain a digital programme this year – although the scale of this will reduced to that of produced in 2020.
The appointed company will utilise the NAM’s audience segmentation model (to develop and shape the integrated Marketing and Communications Plan for the Festival.
The Festival programme will appeal to audiences across the segmentation model, however the key segments which we seek to target for this year’s festival are:
• Historians – Enthusiasts, Military Detectives and History Lovers
• Generalists – Love to Learns
• Transactors – For the Kids
We would like to attract both new audiences and previous attendees to the Festival. Families will also be an important focus as will attracting attendees of the Chelsea Flower Show, the dates of which co-incide with the Festival.
