Join Alison Weir for this talk about book five, Katheryn Howard – The Tainted Queen, in the six Tudor Queens series.

Alison Weir is the biggest-selling female historian (and the fifth best-selling historian) in the United Kingdom since records began in 1997. She has published 23 titles and sold more than three million books – over a million in the UK and more than 2.1 million in the USA. She is now working on two concurrent series of books: Six Tudor Queens, comprising six novels on the wives of Henry VIII and England’s Medieval Queens, a quartet of historical works of non-fiction.

Doors open at 6:30pm, the talk starts at 7pm and will finish between 7:45pm and 8pm.

Following the talk there will then be an opportunity for questions, followed by book sales (there will be hardback copies of Katheryn Howard: The Tainted Queen, along with paperback copies of previous titles within the Tudor Queens series) and signings. One lucky customer will also win a signed book.

Tickets are available on the Bosworth Battlefield website, in person from the ticket office or by calling 01455 290429 (open seven days a week from 10am to 4pm).

It is with regret that Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council have taken the decision to cancel this event and all of their events that were due to take place before the end of June 2020.

We have made this decision in accordance with the latest government guidance, that we should stop non-essential contact with other people, this includes large gatherings and crowded places such as our events.

We will continue to monitor and review the situation for any events that are due to take place from July onwards and of course keep you updated.
