To Kill a King

To Kill a King

This event has finished Took place on: Thursday, 26th Apr 2018

At 2pm, on Tuesday 30 January 1649, Charles I stepped onto a wooden scaffold outside Whitehall’s Banqueting House. He was wearing two shirts to stop him shivering in the cold. The last thing he wanted was for the gathering crowds to mistake it for fear. In one stroke of the executioner’s axe, his head left his body. An anointed king had been executed as a traitor. From imprisonment and trial to execution and legacy, join historian Rebecca Rideal as she unravels one of the most important events in British history – the regicide of Charles I. 

Includes wine reception.

Refunds will only be given if places are cancelled more than 48hours prior to an event (minus the booking fee) or if an event is cancelled by GHL.
