- politician and author Roy Hattersley discussing his new book The Catholics: The Church and its People in Britain and Ireland from the Reformation to the Present Day
- Hannah Grieg, University of York lecturer in 18th-century British history and historical consultant on the BBC drama Poldark, who will delve into Eighteenth-century Cornwall & the world of Poldark
