An Afternoon with Lady Glenconner
Start Date: 23 February 2020
Start Time: 4pm
End Date: 23 February 2020

The Apex, Bury St Edmunds

Lady Glenconner has spent her life as a friend of the royal family. Maid of Honour at the Queen’s Coronation and Lady in Waiting to Princess Margaret, her extraordinary new memoir offers a unique and unparalleled account of major events in royal history.

An instant Sunday Times bestseller, 'Lady in Waiting' reveals the truth behind The Crown as well as the drama, tragedy and courage of her own life.

Taking the nation by storm, her story captures a generation, a social class, and a first-hand view of royal life. Warm, witty and riotously entertaining – but also moving and courageous – Anne Glenconner offers an exclusive insight into the life of an aristocratic woman, and a sense of the volatility that lies beneath the glitter.

From brothels and barons, to growing up with the princesses and meeting her husband Lord Glenconner, with whom she turned Mustique into a paradise for the rich and famous (including music royalty like Mick Jagger and David Bowie!), her astonishing memoir tells a tale of remarkable highs and lows.

Live on stage, don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear Lady Glenconner share royal anecdotes in conversation with a very special guest interviewer.

Copies of 'Lady in Waiting' will be available to purchase at this event.

"Lady Glenconner's life story is a combination of royal magic, personal tragedy and resilient survival. With humour, courage and preternatural poise, she at last tells the story of her uniquely fascinating life" - Tina Brown

"Remarkable… If your jaw doesn’t drop at least three times every chapter, you’ve not been paying proper attention" - The Sunday Times

Tickets: £31 available from the website above.
