Crown & Sceptre: 1000 Years of Kings and Queens
Wednesday 5 October
Castle Hill Baptist Church
In this Platinum Jubilee year, there has never been a more apposite moment to consider the history and evolution of the British Monarchy. One of the most iconic and enduring institutions in the world, it has survived centuries of rebellion, revolution and war and has shaped our religious, political, and cultural identity.
Festival favourite, leading historian and joint chief curator at Historic Royal Palaces Tracy Borman considers the extraordinary survival of the British crown and some of the fascinating characters who have worn it over the centuries.
