Event details

Henry VIII's last will and testament, drawn up a month before his death, is one of the most intriguing and contested documents in British history. It has also been the  source of great controversy. It was overruled to enable the accession of Lady Jane Grey, and was deemed invalid by the supporters of Mary, Queen of Scots.

The prevailing orthodoxy, until now, has been that the will was the product of a conspiracy staged by a reforming religious faction.

This book sets out to question this orthodoxy. Dr Suzannah Lipscomb is an historian, broadcaster and award-winning academic. Suzannah has presented historical documentaries on BBC4, ITV, Channel 5 and National Geographic Channel, and writes a regular column for History Today. Her books include 1536: The Year that Changed Henry VIII, A Visitor's Companion to Tudor England and The King is Dead! The Last Will and Testament of Henry VIII; and (co-edited) Henry VIII and the Court: Art, Politics and Performance.

The bar opens at 530, and the lecture begins at 6pm. Dr Lipscomb will be available to sign copies of her new book, on sale for a discount price!
