To commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Hebden Bridge, the Festival presents an evening with two writers renowned for their work about the Tudors.

Alison WeirAlison Weir is an unashamedly popular historian and historical novelist whose twenty-three best-selling books - many about the Tudors - have done much to illuminate some of the murkier stretches of our country’s past.

‘Weir provides immense satisfaction. She writes in a pacy, vivid style, engaging the heart as well as the mind’. (The Independent)

Suzannah Dunn’s new novel is The Confession of Katherine Howard, the story of Henry VIII's teenaged fifth wife who was executed for adultery after only fifteen months of marriage. Her other work includes a best-selling novel about Anne Boleyn, The Queen of Subtleties, and The Sixth Wife, on Katherine Parr. Prior to writing about the Tudors, she published five contemporary-set novels and two collections of stories.

‘Dunn is a remarkable writer, a lyricist of ordinary life and ordinary people transfigured by extreme emotion' (Daily Telegraph)
