    Next to Queen Elizabeth I, Bess of Hardwick was one of the richest and most powerful women in 16th century England. Through canny choices, four husbands and a will of steel she rose from country squire’s daughter to Dowager Countess. She built a family fortune and created glorious houses, the last - and her greatest achievement - being Hardwick Hall. Her embittered fourth husband once called her a woman of 'devices and desires' and she was portrayed as a monster by 19th century male historians. Kate Hubbard reveals a rich, compelling portrait of a true feminist icon centuries ahead of her time.

    Join us for a special evening looking at the best of Norwegian literature with a UK preview of the Frankfurt Book Fair, where Norway is the guest of honour. We’ll be joined by celebrated authors Marta Breen and Helga Flatland who will be in conversation about their books. Helga’s A Modern Family is a bittersweet novel of regret, relationships and rare psychological insights that encourages us to look at the people closest to us a little more carefully, and ultimately reveals that it’s never too late for change. Marta’s Women in Battle is a graphic novel spanning 150 years of recent history which celebrates the fight for women's rights all over the world. It is the journey of our mothers, grandmothers and great-grandmother to where we are today. The Norwegian Embassy will be joining us for an unmissable evening of music and talks. The event also includes a complimentary drink.
