HISTORIAN Dan Snow will be bringing his live tour to two Cumbrian venues next spring.

The BBC broadcaster, known as 'The History Guy', will be appearing at the Carnegie Theatre, in Workington, and The Forum, in Barrow, in March 2019.

The 72-date History Hit tour will see Snow recount memorable anecdotes and experiences from his successful TV career, and will include historical facts and stories relating to each area and town he visits.

A live extension of his popular History Hit podcast and online TV channel, he promises to cover historical subjects in more depth than you’ve ever seen before.

The son of veteran TV presenter Peter Snow, Dan presented his first programme in October 2002 just after graduating from university, co-presenting the BBC's 60th anniversary special on the Battles of El Alamein with his father.

Snow again collaborated with his father to present BBC 2's 20th Century Battlefields, before fronting a three-part series called Britain's Lost World on BBC One alongside Kate Humble and Steve Backshall.

Other BBC series he has been a part of include Locomotion: Dan Snow's History of Railways, a regular slot on The One Show, and Operation Grand Canyon with Dan Snow, where he was part of a team that travelled down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon in period-correct boats recreating the epic trip by John Wesley Powell in 1869.

Since hosting Dan Snow's History Hit from 2015 onwards, which won the iTunes Best of 2016 Award, he has created the History Hit Network, which offers a selection of history documentaries, as well as commissioning its own.

Dan Snow brings History Hit to the Carnegie Theatre on Friday March 8, 2019, and The Forum on Wednesday March 13. Tickets are available from the venues' box offices now.
