Bibury Literary Festival
29th March we welcome Stephen Tomkins speaking about his new book “The Journey to the Mayflower” at 10.30am in the Chapel
The illegal underground movement of Protestant separatists from Elizabeth I's Church of England is a story of subterfuge and danger, arrests and interrogations, prison and executions. Stephen Tomkins tells this fascinating story - one that is rarely told as an important piece of English, as well as American, history - that is full of contemporary relevance: religious violence, the threat to national security, freedom of religion and tolerance of dangerous opinions.
This is a must-read book for anyone interested in the untold story of how the Mayflower came to be launched. Review taken from Amazon website
