🎧 THE KING’S WITCH: JAMES I AND THE GUNPOWDER PLOT

Audio from Chalke Valley History Festival 2018.
In this talk, inspired by her debut novel partially set at nearby Longford Castle, Festival favourite Tracy Borman takes us into the turbulent world of the early Stuart court, where King James I waged a war on witches and Catholics alike. It was not long before a dark campaign to destroy both King and Parliament gathered pace, culminating in the Gunpowder Plot.
