Chiswick Book Festival Opening Night

On a warm summer evening in the beautiful setting of Chiswick House, the HPW team descended on a thrilling spectacle to mark the opening of the 2016 Chiswick Book Festival. 

Taking the stage to discuss the history surrounding the current series depicting the life of Queen Victoria on ITV, the panel consisting of A.N Wilson, Daisy Goodwin, Anna Wilson-Jones and Torin Douglas put on an extremely though-provoking and insightful show.

To add a real sense of reality to the evening, Anna Wilson-Jones who plays Lady Portman in the series, read extracts from Queen Victoria’s early diary, even managing to find a piece which detailed a visit to the very venue we were sitting in.

Questions from the floor were answered with aplomb, with Torin Douglas playing an excellent host for the evening.

We are delighted as a company to be associated with this fantastic event and we look forward to continuing our support for the years to come.
