    Cold, ruthless, deadly, the myth of Lady Macbeth looms large. But behind the villainous portrait stands a real woman and Blood Queen, the latest novel from local historical author Joanna Courtney, sets out to explore her story. Far from being the crazily ambitious harridan of Shakespeare's wonderful play, the real Lady Macbeth was a gritty royal princess, sent into exile by King Duncan's predecessor and forced to fight a long, hard way back to her royal title. She eventually reigned as Queen of Scotland, alongside her husband Macbeth for 17 highly prosperous years and together they brought stability and prosperity to a notoriously bloody nation. So how was her story so grossly corrupted?

    In Mind Over Batter, former Test batsman, commentator and coach Graeme Fowler looks into all facets of the game to assess the mental aspect of cricket.

When bowlers are hurling the ball down at your head at 90 mph, or fielders are crowded round the bat waiting to snap up an edge, only the most resilient can thrive. Graeme will be in conversation with his ghostwriter, John Woodhouse. John is a well-respected columnist and feature writer well known for his entertaining, insightful, and sensitive journalism on wide-ranging subjects from current affairs to politics, entertainment and sport.

    Free parking is available on site at Landau Forte College. As Head of Oceans at Greenpeace UK, Will McCallum is at the forefront of the anti-plastics movement. Plastic pollution is the environmental scourge of our age: around 12.7 million tonnes of plastic are entering the ocean every year, killing over 1 million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals. By 2050 there could be more plastic in the ocean than fish by weight. How to Give Up Plastic: A Guide to Changing the World, One Plastic Bottle at a Time, will help you make small changes that make a big difference, from buying a reusable coffee cup to running a clean-up at your local park.
