Lady Hamilton with Michael Corfe

Published:

On Friday 15th March at 7.30pm. BOST will be hosting an evening with John Michael Corfe – an amateur historian, who will give a talk regarding ‘Lady Hamilton’. The remarkable tale of how ‘history’ has unjustly and badly maligned this very beautiful, kindly and extraordinarily talented young woman. The story takes us from her simple beginnings in Ness near Neston on the Wirral peninsular through London, Paris and Naples to Sicily and thence on through Austria and Germany back to England and Wales and eventually to Calais. From pauper to ambassadress, she was a devoted and much-cherished friend to a queen, a superb hostess, a wife and a lover, the story takes us through her vilification by an ungrateful nation to her distressing end in a return to poverty.

Tickets are £6 and the evening will include light refreshments and some musical entertainment. The bar will be open for both alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks.

Anyone is welcome to join us for what is destined to be a very informative and entertaining evening. For further information please click on the Contact Us link above, or tickets are available on the door.
