Events at this Venue


The King and the Catholics is gripping characterdriven narrative history at its very best; the story of individuals who are by turns flawed and admirable: George III, who opposed emancipation on the basis of the Coronation Oath; his son, the indulgent Prince of Wales, who was enamoured
with the Catholic Maria Fitzherbert before the voluptuous Lady Conyngham; Wellington and the
‘born Tory’ Peel vying for leadership, and the heroic Daniel O’Connell.
Expertly written and deftly argued, The King and the Catholics is also a distant mirror of our times.
Antonia Fraser is the author of many widely acclaimed historical works which have been
international bestsellers. This evening Antonia will be joined in conversation with writer, lecturer and journalist, Anne Sebba.
