Anna of Kleve – Queen of Secrets

Date: Saturday 21st September 2019
Venue: Public Hall
Time: 5.30pm
Tickets: £12 (Students: £10)

We welcome one of the most popular historians in the UK with the latest in her Six Tudor Queens series. Alison Weir is a Sunday Times best-selling author and historian, and is the biggest-selling female historian (and the fifth best-selling historian) in the UK since records began in 1997. She has published twenty-three titles and sold more than 2.7 million books.

The latest in the series considers Anna of Kleve, the little-known story of Henry VIII’s beleaguered fourth wife and draws on new evidence to conjure a startling image of Anna as you’ve never seen her before. A charming, spirited woman, she was loved by all who knew her – and even, ultimately, by the King who rejected her.

‘Weir is excellent on the little details that bring a world to life.’ The Guardian
