Natalie Haynes Talks at the Royal High School in Bath

The Classics Department at the Royal High School Bath is delighted to invite you to an afternoon with Natalie Haynes on Tuesday 19th November, from 3pm-4:30pm in our Memorial Hall.

Natalie will be presenting ‘Troy Story’: a talk based on her recent book ‘A Thousand Ships’ which retells the stories of the Trojan War from an all-female view, revealing a fresh perspective from the women, girls and goddesses.

This engaging and entertaining author is sure to inspire and inform a wide variety of students in Years 10-13, especially those studying Classics, Drama and English. There will be a chance for questions, book purchases via our local bookshop Topping and Company, and signings after the talk until 4:30pm.

As the event is kindly funded by the Friends of the Royal High School, we are delighted to announce that all tickets are free and will be available on a first come-first served basis. If you would like to attend, please contact with the number of staff and students you would like to bring as soon as possible and by Friday 9th November at the latest.

Natalie will also deliver a second talk in the evening, based on her critically acclaimed book, ‘The Ancient Guide to Modern Life’. Please do advertise this talk in your schools, and if you or your students would like to attend, tickets can be booked via Eventbrite:
