Althorp Literary Festival Proudly Sponsored by Brights of Nettlebed
published date: 12 May 2015
Brights of Nettlebed were proud sponsors of a conversation between Lady Antonia Fraser and Lord Spencer at the 12th Althorp Literary Festival which took place on Saturday 13th June 2015.
One of our finest narrative historians, Lady Antonia Fraser discussed her new release My History: A Memoir of Growing Up in which she recounts her childhood, early life and the experiences that inspired her interest in exploring the past. From her days as an evacuee in a romantic Elizabethan manor house near Oxford, to childhood adventures at Dunsany Castle and Pakenham Hall, Lady Antonia explores the inspirational settings for her historical imaginings. Her magical and moving memoir, told with humour and style, will take many readers back to their own discovery of history.
We enjoyed a wonderful summer’s day at the Althorp Literary Festival, inspired by stellar authors in the setting of one of England’s most beautiful, private, stately homes.
