Anne Boleyn

Keyworth and Ruddington Inner Wheel are hosting an Evening with Anne Boleyn at Widmerpool Church on Friday 20th May – doors open at 7pm with a ;prompt start at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced at £12.50. each and this will include a light supper and a glass of wine.

Anne Boleyn is portrayed by Lesley Smith from Tutbury Castle. I am sure that many of you will have seen her in her roles as Elizabeth I, Mary Queen of Scots and Nell Gwynne.

Lesley portrays Anne just before her execution when she is in the Tower, looking back over her life from her young years at Hever Castle and eventually her relationship and marriage to Henry VIII and then her downfall. It will be a very powerful but wonderful performance in a beautiful Church in the lovely village of Widmerpool.
