Nell Gywnne with 3-course Festive Menu
Friday 3rd December 2021
12pm arrival for a 12.30pm start
Tickets – £42.50pp
Nell Gwynne was the mistress of Charles II and for many people, that is all she was known for – other than for selling oranges!
The real Nell Gwynne is a victory for English womanhood, showing great courage against the background of the bloodiest civil war in English history and the poverty that followed for many of the population. Against all the odds Nell became a star of the London stage and the greatest comic actress of her day, and won the hearts of theatregoers and the king himself. Her rags to riches story may have inspired the story of Cinderella, but even after she caught her handsome prince, Nell was no stranger to tragedy.
You will have a chance to meet pretty, witty little Nell in fantastic costume and have chance to both laugh and cry with her
On arrival, guests will receive a choice of either a glass of prosecco or a glass of mulled wine. The festive menu will be served in the Great Hall at 12.30pm, and consists of: TBC. This will be supplied by our luxurious caterers from ‘The Dragon at Willington’ and this meal will be followed by dessert then tea or coffee in the tearoom. Following this you shall be taken up to the Great Hall where the talk will begin.
