An Evening with Lucy Worsley
About the event
Lucy Worsley OBE is Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces, the charity which looks after the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Palace, and other historic places. Lucy says
“Yes, this is a fabulous job, but no, you can’t have it. Bribes have been offered, and refused.”
Lucy is best known for her series on many historical topics from Queen Victoria, the Georgian Court, the History of the Home and the Art of the British Murder.
Tonight, Lucy paints a vivid picture of Jane Austen, her favourite author. Through the houses, places and possessions that mattered to her, Lucy takes a fascinating look at Jane Austen’s world.
An Evening with Lucy Worlsey includes her talk, Q&A and a chance to meet Lucy while she signs her books.
