Gloucester History Festival: The 2021 Winstone Talk

Anne Boleyn and The History of England's Queens

Leading historian and broadcaster Tracy Borman explores the intriguing life of Anne Boleyn and the history of English Queens from the Tudors to the Windsors.

The British monarchy has weathered the storms of rebellion, revolution and war that brought many of Europe’s royal families to an abrupt and bloody end, yet often spearheading seismic change it is an extraordinary survivor. Join her as she explores the history of the British monarchy through the lives of some of its most powerful women. Tracy Borman is a bestselling historian and TV broadcaster specialising in the Tudor period and is joint Chief Curator of Historic Royal Palaces. Her new book Crown & Sceptre exploring the British monarchy from 1066 to the present day is published this autumn.

Following in the footsteps of Janina Ramirez, Roy Strong and Kate Adie, we’re thrilled that Tracy Borman is giving this year’s Winstone Talk in Cirencester – speaking just ten feet away from Cirencester Parish Church’s greatest treasure, the Anne Boleyn Cup, made for Henry VIII’s queen in 1535 and which can still be viewed at the Church today

Saturday 2 October, 6.30 - 7.30pm

Parish Church of St. John Baptist, Cirencester, GL7 2NX
