History enthusiasts will be in their element when one of Britain’s most famous historians, David Starkey, arrives at Sudeley Castle and Garden’s for a highly anticipated lecture and champagne reception.
Taking place under the North Lawn Marquee on Friday 15 June 2012, the controversial historian is hoping to enlighten visitors with his unique take on the life of Queen Katherine Parr, as part of the Quincentenary Festival 2012.
Starkey has become a household name due to his regular appearances on national radio and television programmes such as BBC Radio 4’s The Moral Maze and Question Time. He also recently taught on the Channel 4 series, Jamie’s Dream School.
Visitors to the lecture can expect to hear a wealth of stories from the man who has written several critically-acclaimed books about Tudor Britain, and who boasts a number of successful television documentaries such as The Six Wives of Henry VIII and Henry VIII: The Mind of a Tyrant. So, if anybody is going to be able to deliver a true insight into the life of the King’s last wife, it’s him.
