Lunchtime Lectures - Mysteries of French History



Join Tim Tubbs in the handsome, panelled Sitwell Library at Woodend Creative for more enjoyable Tuesday lunchtime lectures on popular historical and literary subjects.

Tim Tubbs is Director of UK Foundation for Dance, based at Woodend. After gaining his Oxford MA in English Literature & Language, he pursued a London theatre career and lectured commercially for 10 years on a range of historical, literary and theatrical subjects. In 2008 he returned to his native Scarborough in 2008, where he produces, directs, performs and lectures.

Tuesdays 1pm - 2pm

Three great mysteries that have fascinated historians, novelists and film-makers. Who was the Man In the Iron Mask - the illegitimate half-brother of Louis XIV? What was the real truth of the extravagant Diamond Necklace made for Queen Marie Antionette that so damaged her reputation just before the French Revolution? And the brutal murder of the Duchesse de Praslin that damaged King Louis-Philippe and provoked the 1848 revolutions that swept Europe.
