Conference Details

As part of Churchill 2015, a year long programme to mark the fiftieth anniversary of Sir Winston's death, The Churchill Centre (UK) is delighted to be hosting the 32nd International Conference of The Churchill Centre in Oxfordshire. Activities will centre around three very British stately homes: Blenheim Palace, where Churchill was born, where he proposed, and where he is buried at Bladon; Ditchley Park, where he conducted high level summit meetings during the war; and Heythrop Park, which is now the home of a Crowne Plaza hotel.
