Simon Parke repeats his talk on Julian Of Norwich .
Julian of Norwich, contemporary of both Chaucer and Langland, was the first woman to write a book in English. Yet remarkably, she disappeared from view for 600 years, before her rediscovery in the 20th century.
Who was she? Why did she pray for a near-death experience and then choose containment in a cell? And how, amid these traumatic times, did she speak with such optimism? Simon talks about this fascinating woman.

The natural world and our place within it lie at the centre of Katy Oxborrow’s art.
