New event follows a royal couple in exile

In a change to the published programme, we are delighted to introduce bestselling author Andrew Lownie as he explores the lives of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor in the long years after the abdication.  Much has been written about the crisis surrounding Edward VIII’S 1936 abdication itself, but far less is known about the decades in the wilderness that followed as a consequence. These, as Lownie will reveal, provide far more drama and intrigue and will be of particular fascination for a 2021 audience.

Andrew Lownie will talk about Traitor King: The Duke and Duchess of Windsor in Exile on Saturday 16 October starting at 12.15pm.
