Attend in person
Between Charles I’s execution and Charles II’s restoration, 17th century Britain saw the possibilities of a republic and the challenges of a conservative people trying to create one. Moving the spotlight from Oliver Cromwell to a cast of nine figures who made names for themselves during The Interregnum, Anna Keay’s brilliant account, The Restless Republic, illuminates the most revolutionary and experimental period in Britain’s political history. In conversation with Stuart Kelly.
