Annual Members enjoyed priority booking until 16th April.

Pre-booking is essential.


10 minute talks and book signings with Alison Weir are now available on Friday 19 May.

Come and hear bestselling author Alison Weir talking about the second in her series of novels about the six wives of King Henry VIII – Anne Boleyn: A King’s Obsession – on 18 May, the eve of the anniversary of her execution.

The Long Gallery of Hever Castle, Anne Boleyn’s childhood home, is the perfect setting for Alison to talk about the tumultuous tale of the second wife of Henry VIII and Mother of Elizabeth I who became Queen for just 1,000 days.

The evening begins with a drinks reception in the Castle’s Inner Hall and the chance to be one of the first to purchase a copy of Alison Weir’s new novel. Guests then move to the Long Galley where Alison will talk about the life of Anne Boleyn, and the series of events that would change the course of Britain’s history, monarchy and religion.
