The Pendle Witch

1636. Lancaster Castle - The Witches' Tower. You are imprisoned, awaiting trial, crammed into a cell with a solitary woman who has been here for years. She tells you the story that lead to her being imprisoned, beginning at a Witchcraft Trial, twenty-four years previously. 

But she was not the accused witch. In 1612, she was nine, and she was a witness for the prosecution against the Witches of Pendle, including her own brother, sister, and mother. In this story, the infamous Jennet Device herself tells her version of the events which lead to the hanging of ten people - impossible, had it not been for Jennet's testimony - and how her fortunes fared since then.

Spies, Seduction and the SS: Life for women in Nazi Germany

Jane Thynne, author of the Clara Vine espionage series, will be talking about the women who were married to leading men of the Nazi regime. Set against the background of Berlin and Paris, her thrillers feature an Anglo-German actress and British Intelligence agent who treads a dangerous path to penetrate the private life of the Third Reich. The novels explore life for both ordinary and VIP women in Hitler’s misogynist and murderous society.

The world is full of books about the leading Nazis, but almost nothing is known about their wives. Yet in many cases these women were an important influence on their husbands. Some of them, like Annelies von Ribbentrop and Lina Heydrich, were considered more Nazi than their men. Others, like Emmy Goering, or Henny, the wife of Baldur von Schirach, actively interceded with their husbands on an occasional basis to save friends. Henny von Schirach actually remonstrated with Hitler over the treatment of Jews in Vienna and was banished from his presence thereafter.

Mrs Oscar Wilde

Constance Lloyd is rarely remembered in literary history. A feminist, a writer and a mother, she is rather remembered as the wife of one of the most infamous Victorians – Oscar Wilde. 

From her childhood days suffering at the hands of her abusive mother to blossoming into a young woman of society, Constance’s story is intriguing and varied. She had her own income, she brought up her two small children almost single-handedly and was one of the most well-known faces and names among the celebrities of London in the late 1800s.
