Elizabeth I at Kenilworth, 1575: Warwick Words Festival

The Queen's Secret: set at Kenilworth
If you're based in the West Midlands, do please come and hear me talk about my research for The Queen's Secret at the Warwick Words Festival.

On Monday October 1st, I'll be discussing the secrets and the elaborate preparations behind Elizabeth I's epic visit to Kenilworth Castle in the summer of 1575. Cake and tea are included in the price, which you can eat while chatting with me about the book or Elizabeth's visit. Paperback and hardback copies of The Queen's Secret will also be available to buy, and I'll be happy to sign yours on the day.

Tickets available from Festival Box Office 01926 776438

Monday 1st October: 2pm
Lord Leycester Hospital, Warwick
Discover the lies and conspiracies that surrounded the Virgin Queen and her entourage, and learn about the network of spies run by Elizabeth’s spymaster, Francis Walsingham. From jewelled gowns to stuffed swans, marble fountains to local mummers, all the most fascinating research behind the novel will be revealed. Victoria Lamb will also attempt to unravel the various theories on Elizabeth’s relationship with her court favourite Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester and her host at Kenilworth that year.
