The Forgotten Prince

15 November 2012, 19:00

Ondaatje Wing Theatre

Tickets: £5/£4

Sir Roy Strong began collecting material on Henry, Prince of Wales while still a postgraduate student in the 1950s. He realised that Henry Stuart was a major figure who had been written out of the country’s cultural  history. Sir Roy wrote the first fully-documented biography of the Prince.

Sir Roy Strong is an art historian and has written extensively on the country's history and culture. Aged 32, he became Director of the National Portrait Gallery, which he revitalised with innovative exhibitions. He was then appointed Director of the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1974, a post which he resigned in 1987 to pursue a freelance career in the media and as a writer and consultant.
