The Great Fire, Coming Soon

Set in 1666 with events unfolding over four consecutive days, the Great Fire indiscriminately engulfs the city, as no matter what your path in life or status all human life is vulnerable.

From the humble baker, Thomas Farriner and his family to the ambitious Samuel Pepys and King Charles II, the characters’ stories will interweave as the city, and their lives, are changed beyond imagining during one of our nation’s greatest historical disasters. As the greatest city of the 17th century is destroyed, the fire is a catalyst to acts of forbidden love, deceit and despair.
