Ticket price

Four of the best current historical fiction writers attempt to persuade you, the audience, that each has chosen the best, most rewarding era to write about.  They will be asked to describe why the period they write about is the most exciting, open to interpretation, compulsive and worthy of exploration and has the finest characters to use or create.  Then it will be down to the audience to nominate the most persuasive speaker. Rory Clements, Robyn Young, and Antonia Hodgson will speak about the the Elizabethans, the Georgians, and James 1 and Robert the Bruce,  and the chair, Lindsey Davis will throw her arguments behind the English Civil War.  Noisy, fun and not to be missed.

Clements is author of novels set in the Elizabethan period including The Queen’s Man;  Young is author of a trilogy based on Robert the Bruce; Hodgson’s novel The Devil in the Marshalsea is set in Georgian Britain; and Davis is author of a series of novels set in the Roman Empire and a more recent novel, Rebels and Traitors, set in the English Civil War.

Author Anthony Riches was originally due to join this panel but has had to pull out for unavoidable reasons.
