Oliver Cromwell’s House will host

Oliver Cromwell’s House will host "An Audience With Jemahl Evans”, author of ‘The Last Roundhead’, to launch of his second novel ‘This Deceitful Light’.


Oliver Cromwell’s House is to host an “Audience With Jemahl Evans”, author of ‘The Last Roundhead’, to mark the launch of his second novel ‘This Deceitful Light’.

On Thursday September 21, the audience will be able to hear Jemahl in conversation, as he discusses his love of history and his path to becoming an author.

There will also be a Q&A session afterwards and an opportunity to purchase a signed copy of the book.

The second book in the Blandford Candy series, Evans’ newest novel revolves around a murdered actor and English Civil War skulduggery.

Set in the 17th century, it gives a realistic portrait of Cromwell, his unfortunate teenage son and an account of the battle of Marston Moor.

Tracey Harding, manager at Oliver Cromwell’s House, said: “Jemahl visited us whilst he was researching his second book and it will be exciting to see his work come to fruition.

“The event is set to be an engaging evening with a combination of humour and history, held in the very room that features in the novel.”

The “Audience With” concept was premiered during the Ely Eel Festival Weekend earlier this year, when Oliver Cromwell’s House played host to a foodie themed event, with celebrity chefs Theo Randall and Jane Devonshire and the team behind the first Sake Brewery in the UK.

Tickets, £10, can be booked via www.olivercromwellshouse.co.uk

Doors open at 6.30pm where a glass of Cromwell’s Cider will be served before the 7pm start.

Copies of “This Deceitful Light” are on sale in the gift shop at Oliver Cromwell’s House priced at £7.99.
