Game of Spies

Game of Spies uncovers a lethal spy triangle at work during the Second World War. The story centres on three men – one British, one French and one German – and the duels they fought out in an atmosphere of collaboration, betrayal and assassination in wartime Bordeaux.

After service as a Royal Marine and as an intelligence officer for the UK security services, Paddy Ashdown was MP for Yeovil from 1983 to 2001, leader of the Liberal Democrats from 1988 until 1999 and knighted in 2000. Later he was the international High Representative for Bosnia and Herzegovina from 2002 to 2006.

Winchester in Literature

Come for a walk with the Winchester Tourist Guides and hear what famous (and less famous) writers have had to say about the city from Saxon times to the present day, with readings from books, poems and even a song or two.

‘The city of Wintoncester, that fine old city, aforetime capital of Wessex, lay amidst its convex and concave downlands in all the brightness and warmth of a July morning.’

Thomas Hardy, Tess of the D’Urbervilles

‘Blood flowed out of the butchers’ shops into the street, and fat rats dodged between the feet of  the people who came to buy.’

Ken Follett, The Pillars of the Earth

The walk starts outside the Tourist Information Centre. Tickets should be booked in advance through the Cathedral Box Office. The walk lasts for approx. 90 minutes.
