Thomas Wyatt was a poet, courtier, a possible traitor, and the rumoured lover of Anne Boleyn. In her unique biography, Susan Brigden invokes the spirit of Tudor England through the friends and compatriots of Thomas Wyatt – a huge figure in the capricious and sparkling court of Henry VIII. This is a fascinating book and a new perspective on the life of a complicated and difficult man.

This event has been positioned to provide an interesting alternative focus on the Tudor period a fortnight before our event with Hilary Mantel on Tuesday 11th September. Join us to hear about the absorbing, multi-faceted world of Wyatt, Cromwell, Wolsey and More in a different light.
