About this event

Father Henry Garnet was the Jesuit priest who was the last man to be executed for his part in the Gunpowder Plot and who became notorious for his doctrine of 'equivocation'. His story is also interesting from a local point of view as he was born in Heanor and for some time attended Nottingham High School where his father Brian was Headmaster.

William Ruff retired from being Head of English at Nottingham High School in July 2014 and has been the classical music critic of the Nottingham Post for the past 26 years.

This is a repeat of the sell-out talk William has given twice at Bromley House Library.
