In her latest novel, A Thousand Ships, broadcaster and classicist Natalie retells the story of the Trojan War from an all-female perspective. Ahead of her performance of Troy Story at the Bloomsbury Theatre later in the day, she will join Dr Antony Makrinos, Senior Teaching Fellow in Classics at UCL, for a conversation about the women who've been previously confined to the shadows and who now should take centre stage.

Natalie will also be bringing her Troy Story show to UCL at 7.30pm. Tickets are £5.00. Separate booking required. Book now

Natalie Haynes is a classicist, comedian, writer and broadcaster. Her BBC Radio 4 show, Natalie Haynes Stands Up for the Classics, is about to record its fifth series. She is the author of five books: her most recent novel, A Thousand Ships, was published in May.
