The Fall of the House of Byron, with Emily Brand
Monday 13th April 18:30 at Nottingham
The book follows the fates of Lord Byron's ancestors over three generations in a drama that begins in rural Nottinghamshire and plays out in the gentlemen's clubs of Georgian London, amid tempests on far-flung seas, and in the glamour of pre-revolutionary France. A compelling story of a prominent and controversial characters, it is a sumptuous family portrait and an electrifying work of social history.
'Brings to life the colourful characters of the Georgian era's most notorious families with all the verve and skill of the era's finest novelists... A powdered and pomaded, sordid and silk-swathed adventure' - Hallie Rubenhold
'A chocolate box full of delicious gothic delights - jump in' - Lucy Worsley
'Brand is a great historian, equal to the huge challenge of telling the story of history's most turbulent and colourful lives' - Dan Snow
