Reviews of our last meetings

 

December 4th 2012  – –  Mary, Queen of Scots.

Lizzie Jones came to present Mary, Queen of Scots during her final tour of presentations of characters from history. We were lucky to secure a booking and met in St Joseph’s Parish Hall on a rather chilly Tuesday night. Lizzie came with an outstanding reputation and did not disappoint us. Queen Mary made a regal entrance to the hall and addressed the audience for almost an hour. We were all spellbound. She demonstrated a knowledge of tremendous depth, and presented a character for whom we developed sympathy and understanding. After the presentation she answered questions and gave us even more information and insight into this complex individual. Even during our cups of tea she continued to chat with members before finally heading back to her sister’s house. We were glad to discover that she will continue to visit Britain to give talks about historical characters so if you missed her this time round we may book her in the future.
