Life in the court of the House of Stuart has been shrouded in mystery: the first half of the century overshadowed by the fall and execution of Charles I, the second half in the complete collapse of the House itself.
Lost to time is the extraordinary contribution the Stuarts made to the fabric of sovereignty. Provost of Gresham College and Chair of the National Lottery Heritage Fund Simon Thurley takes us from Royston and Newmarket, where James I appropriated most of the town centre as a sort of rough-and-ready royal housing estate, to the steamy Turkish baths at Whitehall where Charles II seduced his mistresses. The everyday lives of the monarchy is presented through the buildings in which they lived and the objects they commissioned, bringing to life the Stuart age.
The talks starts at 6.30pm, doors open from 6.15pm.
Copies of the book will be available to purchase on the night.
