About this event

ONLINE EVENT

An enthralling talk to compliment the Norfolk Archive Centre’s new exhibition on the Duleep Singh family, to be given by the eminent author Peter Bance on the life of East Anglia’s most famous Royals who lived at Elveden, Old Buckenham, Breckles, and Blo Norton.

Prince Duleep Singh was only 11 years old when his kingdom of Punjab was annexed by the East India Company and surrendered the famous Kohinoor diamond. He was exiled to England where he chose East Anglia as his home and where his family resided for almost a century.

Peter Bance will be sure to keep you captivated with anecdotes of the Duleep Singh’s with unseen Victorian photography from the family’s personal albums and give an insight to this fascinating family of Historians, Archaeologists, philanthropists to Suffragettes. A talk not to be missed!

Peter Bance will be appearing on Channel 4 and BBC Antiques Roadtrip this summer

Online attendees will receive the Zoom link the day before the talk.

This is a hybrid event, with a small in-person audience at The Archive Centre and an online audience. You can book a place for the in-person audience here
