Jane Dismore will be discussing the story of love and scandal in her new book ‘Tangled Souls: Love and Scandal Among the Victorian Aristocracy’.

Daniel Smith and Simon Danczuk will be sharing the story of ‘Scandal at Dolphin Square’, with its an ever-evolving cast of larger-than-life characters who witnessed and played pivotal roles in some of the most scandalous episodes of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

Festival executive director Helen Meeke said: ‘As well as touching on people's interests and passions The History Press content informs us about people's families, neighbourhoods, communities and the sense of belonging.”
