Buffet and Talk with Queen Boudicca
Saturday 18th January 2020
7pm arrival for 7.30pm start until 10pm | £23.50 per person
Enjoy a delicious buffet followed by a fantastic talk by the warrior Queen Boudicca!
The story of Boudicca, although much of it is cloaked in poor evidence is still extraordinary. Britannia was a remote outpost of the Roman Empire and in the early years of Roman occupation was still divided into many Celtic tribal kingdoms. Among these, in the part that we now know as East Anglia, was the kingdom of the Iceni, whose warrior queen Boudicca stood against the Roman invaders when her male counterparts were too weak to do so.
This inspiring and mighty Queen was on a mission of revenge for the rape of her daughters and possessed an absolute determination to teach the Romans on her land a sharp lesson. Gathering support from other Celtic tribes, the red-headed queen swept across eastern England, and came close to driving the Romans out altogether. In the end she fell, but her glorious rebellion sent shock waves across the mighty Roman Empire. This is her story.
This promises to be a truly interesting evening and certainly not one to be missed.
The buffet will be served at 7.30pm followed by dessert and tea or coffee. Following this you shall be taken up to the Great Hall where you begin the talk.
We ask that guests arrive no earlier than 7pm as you will not be available to have access before this time and be ready at 7.30pm as the buffet will be served promptly.
