Join us for this unique event, hosted by broadcaster Sir Trevor McDonald, pitting the key characters of 18th-century politics against each other. What was Robert Walpole, Britain’s first prime minister, really like? What does it mean to be Whig or Tory? And what will ‘the Duchess’, Georgiana Cavendish, have to say about it all?
