    PLEASE NOTEThis date has yet to be confirmed. It was for personal reasons Melvyn Bragg had to cancel his engagements in the spring; he hopes to be in a position to reschedule his visit to us for later in the year. We will keep you posted.

    Melvyn is an author and broadcaster.

    William Tyndale was born around 1494 in Gloucestershire and educated at Oxford and Cambridge University where he became a strong supporter of church reform. He was ordained as a priest in around 1521 and returned to Gloucestershire to serve as a chaplain to a member of the local gentry. Tyndale's controversial opinions began to attract the attention of the church authorities. ©BBC
