Don't forget to get your tickets to the first ever Thames Valley History Festival starting on Monday.

The Royal Borough's libraries have teamed up with Waterstones in Peascod Street, Windsor, to organise the first ever history festival.

Venues across the borough will be hosting 22 authors at 11 different events for fans of history tales of all ages.

Cllr Simon Dudley, cabinet member for adult and community services, said: "Last year's Festival of Crime Writing was a huge success and now our libraries team and Waterstones have come up with what is sure to be another best-seller."

Events will take place at libraries, the Windsor and Royal Borough Museum, Windsor Guildhall, Waterstones and the Windsor and Eton Brewery.

Among the themes celebrated in the festival will be 'Shakespeare's Local', 'Armies of Rome' and 'Great Queens'.

The festival will run until Saturday, November 17.

Tickets cost £5 with an advantage card or £6 without, and there is a three-for-two offer on all of the adult events.

To book contact 01628 796969 or visit either Windsor, Maidenhead or Ascot Durning libraries
