We are delighted that historical musicians, Pearl in the Egg, will be joining us at our special The History Books day at Layer Marney Tower as part of Alison Weir’s event.

Alison Weir, No 1 Sunday Times bestselling author of the Six Tudor Queens series, will be giving an insight into the second in a captivating new trio of novels spanning three generations of history’s most iconic family, the Tudors.

Henry VIII: The Heart & the Crown is a riveting tale, and ultimately a poignant one, taking an empathetic view of a man who is all too often portrayed as a caricature of his true self.

Pearl in the Egg are Historical Musicians, specialising in Medieval, Tudor and Elizabethan Music. They also play Anglo Saxon, Norman, Victorian, Edwardian and 1940’s music. They play in full authentic costume on copies of original instruments.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to experience traditional music and an incredible author at the stunning Layer Marney Tower.
