Lesley Smith (Curator of Tutbury Castle)
7.30pm Thursday 12 April 2018
The Venue, Bishop Grosseteste University

Following the sell-out event ‘Sex and the Tudors’, don’t miss this chance to see the world renowned Lesley Smith return to the Venue for an evening with Nell Gwynne. Strictly for over 16’s only!  She can be bawdy at times, so be prepared!

Nell Gwynne was the mistress of Charles II and for many people they believe that was all she was known for – other than for selling oranges! The real Nell Gwynne is a victory for English womanhood showing great courage and against all the odds became a star of the London stage and beloved of the King of England.

You will have a chance to meet pretty, witty little Nell in a fantastic costume and have a chance to both laugh and cry with her.

Tickets: £7.50, to book tickets click here.

For further information contact Daisy Wedge on 01522 585635 or email

All proceeds from the event go to the BGU Foundation.
