Raglan Castle

Raglan Castle


Lesley Smith, Historian and Curator of Tutbury Castle, delights once again with one of her performances; this time she is Nell Gwynne. A highly entertaining and historically informative evening.

Meet pretty, witty little Nell in a fantastic costume and have a chance both to laugh and cry with her. Nell Gwynne was the mistress of Charles II, and many people believe that was all she was known for – other than for selling oranges! The real Nell Gwynne was a victory for English womanhood, showing great courage and, against all the odds, she became a star of the London stage and the beloved of the King of England. She can be bawdy at times, so be prepared!

Complimentary Pimms and oranges before the performance.
Pre-book your tickets to avoid disappointment - on 01291 690228. An evening not to be missed!
Strictly for adults only.
