A ROLLICKING SLIDE THROUGH ONE OF THE BLOODIEST PERIODS OF BRITISH HISTORY
War of the Roses Abridged – St Lawrence Church, York, YO10 3WP – Saturday 20th October 7pm – £4adv £5 door (concs available)
£3 advance tickets for pensioners and students up to the age of 25 – Children under 12 FREE!
This fantastic church hall dates back to 1935 but has since gone a full refurbishment so is nice and warm
all year round. The parish of St Lawrence in York has origins going back 1,000 years!
We could not do a tour about the Wars of the Roses without visiting York!
Richard Atkinson believes passionately that those issues which dominate society today have not really
moved far from their 15th century equivalents.
Sliding through the Wars of the Roses, he will highlight the key players, attempt to explain their motives
and look at how things might have turned out. Richard is reliant on his tech savvy children to assist with
the compilation of the talk, a recipe for mix ups and misinformation.
With an eye for humour in the darkest hours and the downright bizarre, Richard aims to examine
whether fun does help recall the facts. A history lecture like no other that has been specially written to be
performed at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Come and listen to Edinburgh’s most educational show, it’s more E4 than BBC4 but the facts are all in
there! If nothing else you could just learn a fact that could swing a pub quiz tie breaker or save you using a
lifeline on “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?”
