Welcome to Warwick Words Xtra Events for Spring/Summer 2015.
We are delighted to be hosting a stimulating series of Xtra events in Warwick between February and June.
We are joined by biographer Anne de Courcy, military historians Jon Cooksey and Graham McKechnie, novelists S J Watson - author of the recently filmed Before I Go to Sleep - and James Runcie, whose Grantchester Mysteries are being dramatised for ITV, to discuss their latest publications. Martin Hughes-Games, presenter of the BBC’s Springwatch and Autumnwatch, will tell us about A Wild Life - his time spent filming wildlife documentaries around the world. Journalist (and former editor of Wisden) Matthew Engel discusses his travels around the country in search of the essence of each county for Engel’s England. We are also very pleased that Emma Bridgewater will be coming to Warwick Words Xtras for an afternoon of tea, cake … and pottery! In June, acclaimed historian Dan Jones, joins us at Warwick Castle to tell us the explosive and thrilling story of the War of the Roses, in his best-selling book, The Hollow Crown.
Please note that with the closure of the Bridge House Theatre, our box office is now being run by the Royal Spa Centre and Town Hall in Leamington Spa. Tickets are available online, by telephone (01926 33 44 18) and in person at the Town Hall box office in Leamington Spa.
We look forward to seeing you this spring-summer!
