An Evening with Mary Beard at Godolphin Performing Arts Centre

Join us for what promises to be a fascinating evening of historical excellence with Mary Beard, as she discusses her bestselling book Emperor of Rome. In her customary lively yet scholarly style, the eminent historian and author of SPQR presents an authoritative account of the role of Roman Emperor and the colourful personalities who occupied that position over the centuries. 

Mary Beard is one of the most original and best-known classicists working today. She is Professor of Classics at Newnham College, Cambridge, and the Classics editor of the TLS. She is a fellow of the British Academy and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Her books include the Wolfson Prize-winning Pompeii: The Life of a Roman Town (2008) and the best-selling SPQR: A History of Ancient Rome (2015). Her popular TLS blog has been collected in the books It's a Don's Life and All in a Don's Day. Her latest book is Women & Power: A Manifesto (2017).

Please note: this event is taking place at Godolphin School Performing Arts Centre.
