10.00 – 10.50
Sunday 4th April

Dr Helen Castor treats festival goers to an illuminating account of England’s iconic queen, revealing a reign shaped – both in terms of practical politics and personal psychology – by a profound and enduring insecurity.
Sunday and Weekend Pass holders will have access to this talk.
