Speaker: Simon Jenkins

Simon Jenkins will be shedding light on some of the key individuals and events in English history, from the country’s birth, rise to global prominence, and then partial eclipse. Commentating on all the recurring themes, from conflicts between the crown and the people, to relations with France and the heroic role of Parliament, he will show how today’s England came into being.

Simon Jenkins is one of our most eminent writers and cultural commentators, he is both a household name and someone with a deep knowledge and understanding of our country’s history. His talk promises to be an absorbing and hugely entertaining overview told with his usual humour, flair and authority.
