AFTERNOON TEA - BEHIND THE THRONE
Playing at The Town Hall
Sat 27th April
Adrian Tinniswood’s Behind the Throne uncovers the reality of five centuries of life at the English court, taking the reader on a remarkable journey from one Queen Elizabeth to another and exploring life as it was lived by clerks and courtiers and clowns and crowned heads: the power struggles and petty rivalries, the tension between duty and desire, the practicalities of cooking dinner for thousands, or ensuring the king always won when he played a game of tennis.
Adrian will be interviewed by Jane Wenham-Jones.
