Description

In this talk, inspired by her debut novel, Tracy will take us into the turbulent world of the early Stuart court, where King James I waged a war on witches and Catholics alike.

It was not long before a dark campaign to destroy both King and Parliament gathered pace, culminating in the Gunpowder Plot. The heroine of the
novel is Frances Gorges, daughter of one of Elizabeth I’s favourite ladies in waiting. Interweaving fact and fiction, Tracy will tell Frances’s story, and in so doing will bring one of the most dramatic events in British history vividly to life.

Suitable for ages 16 and above.

Booking essential.
