BBC History Magazine’s History Weekends to take place in Winchester

BBC History Magazine’s History Weekends takes place in Winchester this autumn for the seventh year running, with a new venue, and its best line up yet, between 1st and 3rd November. Over the course of the weekend, they'll have diverse and engaging talks, interactive Q&As and book signings from the world’s leading historians and authors including Michael Wood, Alison Weir, Dan Jones, Tracy Borman and BBC Radio 4’s Jenni Murray.

This time round, the venue is the magnificent Guildhall, the Victorian building that sits at the heart of the historic city. Historian Alison Weir will be discussing Anna of Kleve: Queen of Secrets, revealing a charming woman loved by all who knew her – even by the king who rejected her. Historian and broadcaster Lucy Worsley’s illustrated talk takes a tour of the country to see where Jane Austen lived. Dispelling the myth of the cynical lonely spinster, Lucy instead offers us a witty and passionate woman of her time.
