Sat 30 Nov, The Core Theatre talks & lectures
Historian Lucy present a fascinating look at Queen Victoria.
Lucy Worsley presents Queen Victoria - Daughter, Wife, Mother and Widow
Queen Victoria: a little old lady, spherical in shape, dressed in black, perpetually grumpy. Right? Historian Lucy Worsley wants to make you think again. Meet a complex, contradictory woman, who had a traumatic childhood, who loved dancing, who suffered calamity and bereavement, before coming out the other side as an eccentric, powerful and really rather magnificent old lady. Lucy's illustrated talk takes you into the life, the palaces, and the rich colourful age of this woman who ruled a quarter of the globe.
There will be a Q&A session with Lucy after the interval, plus a book signing at the end of the show.
Presented in Solihull in association with Clive Conway Productions
