Royal Gossip - your chance to learn more

Royal Gossip - your chance to learn more

Royal gossip has always been popular and this fascinating new course from WEA Fetcham & Bookham Branch is taking a peek into its more salacious past. Historian Colin Parrish is leading a seven-week course entitled The Illegimate Royals at The Old Barn Hall in Bookham running from Wednesday May 1st from 10am-noon.

The course will consider the lives of the illegitimate offspring of England and Scotland's monarchs and the role many of them played in both church and state. Starting at the end of the 11th century we will work through the generations to the family of the future King William IV and Mrs Jordan. Fascinating, often powerful, sometimes dangerous, the illegitimate offspring were Britain's alternative royal family.

The cost for the whole course is £60.20 (courses may be free for those on income related benefits). For details, visit: wea.org.uk or call 0300 303 3464, quoting C3743207.
