An evening with Elizabeth I, featuring renowned historian Lesley Smith
An audience with Good Queen Bess herself! Be transported to the world of Raleigh, Drake and Shakespeare, with one of history’s mightiest monarchs at the peak of her reign.
There is no doubt that Gloriana had one of the most profound effects on English and European politics. The Protestant queen in the cold bed was given a matter of months on the throne by observers of the day believing she could not hope to survive. Queen Elizabeth, in fact, went on to rule England longer than any other monarch before her. Her passionate belief in the English people and her lack of martial ambition combined with a brilliant mind and outstanding political skills is why she was so hugely successful. Confounding all.
Here is a chance to meet Her Majesty at her political zenith and already an icon in an English psyche.
This glittering presentation will transport the audience back to the time of Drake, Raleigh and Shakespeare on England’s voyage into the Renaissance.
