Alison Weir

Elizabeth of York: The Last White Rose 

Sun 29 May 8pm 

Two Sisters’ Theatre 


Alison Weir returns to the Festival by popular demand to talk about her latest book. Alison is such a gorgeous lady, it’s a great pleasure to be welcoming her back especially in Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee year. 

Eldest daughter of the royal House of York, Elizabeth dreams of a crown to call her own. But when her beloved father, King Edward, dies suddenly, her destiny is rewritten. Her family’s enemies close in. Two young princes are murdered in the Tower. Then her uncle seizes power – and vows to make Elizabeth his queen. 

But another claimant seeks the throne, the upstart son of the rival royal House of Lancaster. Marriage to this Henry Tudor would unite the white rose of York and the red of Lancaster – and change everything.   

A great new age awaits. Now Elizabeth must choose her allies – and husband – wisely, and fight for her right to rule.    

Copies of the book will be available to purchase on the night and Ms Weir will be signing copies after the talk.  

60 minutes plus signing, no interval
