The story of Queen Elizabeth I’s visit to Norwich will be told in an illustrated talk in a historic location.
Strangers’ Hall in Norwich is the setting of the next Workers’ Educational Association Norfolk Federation (WEA) day school on Wednesday, June 13.
Beginning with coffee and a welcome talk, there will be a brief history of the Hall and its present life as a museum, followed by a guided tour.
The guides will present an illustrated talk and map, showing Queen Elizabeth I’s progress through the City during her visit in 1578.
If there is time, the day will continue at the Bridewell Museum, a two-floor museum exploring the city’s industrial history.
Bookings can be made for £15 using the WEA brochure, obtainable in county libraries, the King’s Centre in Norwich, or through Michael Bugden on 01603 782555 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The day will last from 10.15am-4pm.
