Jimmy Stewart plays George Bailey, a forlorn small-town banker who, while considering suicide, meets Clarence (Henry Travers), an angel in training. Clarence shows George what life would be like if he had never been born, and through this George is able to realize how valuable one person’s life can be. This film, directed by Frank Capra, has become a Christmas classic. It is a reminder that life may not be what we expected but it is still sweet and rich.

Alison Weir Talk: Anne Boleyn, A King’s Obsession

Friday, 26th January 2018

19:30 - 21:00

In this richly illustrated talk, bestselling historian and novelist, Alison Weir, will shed light on the relationship between Katharine of Aragon and her rival for the King’s affection, Anne Boleyn. Fresh from the sophisticated palaces of Burgundy and France, Anne draws the attention at the English court and embraces the play of courtly love. But when the King commands, nothing is ever a game. She has a spirit worthy of a crown - and a crown is what she seeks. And so she embarks on her perilous course, which will plunge a kingdom into turmoil.

Alison Weir weaves new research and theories into the dark, powerful tale of Henry VIII’s second wife - a woman ahead of her time, who dared to question traditional concepts of femininity, and whose ambition drove her to gamble with the fickle nature of a dangerous king.

There will be a book stall and at the end of the evening Alison will be signing copies of her two recent novels, Anne Boleyn, A King’s Obsession, and Katherine of Aragon, the True Queen.

Tickets: £12 adults, £10 under 16s (including a glass of wine or soft drink).

6.00pm A Tudor-style Pottage & Ale Supper

The 13th century Knights’ Chamber is the atmospheric setting for a supper before Alison Weir’s talk. It will be accompanied by re-enactors and attendants in Tudor costume.

TICKETS: £48 per person, includes drinks and a reserved seat for the 7.30pm talk by Alison Weir. £36 for supper only. For more information or to book visit www.peterborough-cathedral.org.uk/143/section.aspx/142/pottage2018 or call 01733 452336.
