We are delighted that renowned historian Alison Weir will return to Guildford this year to talk about the third of Henry VIII’s queens, Jane Seymour.

Drawing on new research Weir’s latest novel casts fresh light on the young queen, portraying her as a young woman of courage and compassion, driven by the strength of her faith, and the belief that she can achieve some good in a wicked world. But, she is haunted by the fate of her predecessor. All will be well if only she can give the King what he wants – a son.

Alison Weir’s wonderfully detailed novel offers a spellbinding solution to the mystery of Anne’s true nature
