Enjoy a literary lunch with Earl Charles Spencer. A journalist, broadcaster, and historian, Earl Spencer is an utterly charming speaker. He enlivens history, drawing out ripping yarns with style and sensitivity.

The White Ship tells the story of a ship sunk near the Normandy coast in 1120, a tragedy with only one survivor. Among those who drowned was the only legitimate heir to the English throne. The shipwreck resulted in a period known as The Anarchy, a crisis of succession that would have repercussions for over thirty years.

Places are fully redeemable against a copy of The White Ship and include lunch before the talk.
