The Rose Theatre was born into a community on the south bank, ‘the wrong side of the river’, which was colourful, bawdy and illegal. Guy Rowston looks at Southwark in Tudor and Stuart times with stories of corrupt officials, secret agents, celebrity bears, religious persecution, plague, fire, brothels and beer.
The talk will begin at 7.30pm, followed by a Q&A session.
Free admission for Friends of The Rose, otherwise we kindly ask for a £5 donation per person.
The Rose is an indoor archaeological site, it is advisable to dress with an extra layer as there is no heating. There are also no toilets so please use Shakespeare’s Globe just a few hundred metres away.
