About the event

A young boy grows up dreaming of knights and chivalry. Harry is the second son. He is never meant to rule. But the death of his brother changes everything, and great destiny awaits this young prince.

One day he will be the most infamous king in English history. Henry VIII. His story.

We’re delighted to invite you to a very special presentation by the Sunday Times No.1 Bestselling author Alison Weir. She has published more than thirty books, including many leading works of non-fiction, and has sold over three million copies worldwide. Her novels include the Tudor Rose trilogy, which spans three generations of history’s most iconic family – the Tudors, and the highly acclaimed Six Tudor Queens series about the wives of Henry VIII, all of which were Sunday Times bestsellers.

'History has the best stories and they should all be told like this’ Conn Iggulden

Henry VIII: The Heart and the Crown is published on 11 May 2023. Fresh from the printers, Niche Books Huntingdon will be selling first editions before and after the event, together with many titles from Alison’s extensive backlist, and the author will be pleased to personally sign copies.

Already steeped in history, Huntingdon is 10 miles from Somersham, 11 miles from Kimbolton and 23 miles from Fotheringhay: just three locations closely associated with the man who would change everything about the English way of life forever. Come and hear his story, brought majestically to life by one of the UK’s most popular novelists.  'Weir is excellent on the little details that bring a world to life’ Guardian

The Commemoration Hall will be open from 10:00am for light refreshments and the doors will open at 1:30pm.
