Essex Book Festival

Prince Albert – the man who saved the Monarchy.  What a statement.  How did he save the Monarchy?  Did the Monarchy need saving?  We are so fortunate to have the erudite A N Wilson with us, as part of the 2020 Essex Book Festival to talk about his new book, Prince Albert.  The timing couldn’t be better for us!  WIth the modern Monarchy seemingly constantly in the news.  Come and hear what A N Wilson has to say about Queen Victoria’s beloved husband.

According to A N Wilson, Prince Albert was at the vanguard of Victorian Britain’s transformation as a vibrant and extraordinary centre of political technological, scientific and intellectual advancement.

We are expecting a fascination and enlightening evening.  This is A N Wilson’s second visit to Layer Marney Tower, last time he spoke about Queen Victoria, this time her husband.  A wonderful opportunity for us to find out about this Royal dynasty.  We are delighted to welcome him back.

Tickets are through the Mercury Theatre on 01206 573948
