Join us on your favourite social media platform — Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or YouTube — as Peter Frankopan, Chair of the Jury, takes the reins of the Cundill History Prize's channels to announce the three finalists of the 2020 Cundill History Prize. Looking back on this year’s extended shortlist, giving a taste of what jury deliberations were like in this unprecedented year, and, of course, naming and commending the finalist authors, Peter’s special presentation is not to be missed.

Immediately following the announcement, we will welcome attendees to our newly-launched, dedicated finalists page, with a whole suite of content presenting and celebrating our finalists: the authors, the works, and the histories that are changing the game in 2020.
