Join TV historian Lesley Smith for another of her highly entertaining and historically informative performances, this time as Warrior Queen Boudicca. The story of Boudicca, although much 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 now known 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. Hold tight for an emotional and incredible story from our Celtic past!

Doors open at 7pm. Performance begins at 7.30pm and ends around 8.30pm.
