THE OCTAGON AUDITORIUM
With Reverend Richard Coles
Charles Spencer The White Ship Written to commemorate the 900th anniversary of the shipwreck, best-selling author Charles Spencer evokes the harsh and brutal story of the Normans from Conquest to Anarchy.
With their heir dead, a civil war of untold violence erupted, a game of thrones which saw families turned in on each other with English and Norman barons, rebellious Welsh princes and the Scottish king all playing a part in a bloody, desperate scrum for power.
Charles Spencer was a reporter on NBC’s Today show from 1986 until 1995, and is the author of seven books, including two Sunday Times bestsellers - Blenheim: Battle for Europe (shortlisted for History Book of the Year, National Book Awards), Killers of the King: The Men Who Dared to Execute Charles I - and To Catch a King: Charles II’s Great Escape.
A £1 ticket levy is included in all stated ticket prices.
