Come and hear Suzannah Dunn speak about The May Bride and her new book, The Lady of Misrule, at some of the countries finest stately homes. 

We’re delighted to announce that Suzannah Dunn will be taking part in a series of exclusive events, in partnership with the National Trust, at four spectacular properties throughout June and July.

Suzannah’s historical fiction brings the past to life – just like stepping through the doorway of a National Trust house. The events are taking place at four stunning National Trust Tudor properties: Baddesley
Clinton in Warwickshire, Newark Park in Gloucestershire, Trerice near Newquay, Cornwall and Ightham Mote in Kent. Guests will be served light refreshments and Champagne on arrival, followed by a talk by Suzannah on why the Tudor period still fascinates and enthralls us all.

As well as the event and tea, tickets also include full entry to each property*, plus a copy of The May Bride in paperback. We hope that you can join Suzannah for these truly special events, in which history will come vividly to life, just as it does in her books.
