Henrietta Howard: King’s Mistress, Queen’s Servant
7.00pm Tuesday 5 March
Gunnersbury Park Museum, Gunnersbury Park House, Popes Lane, London. W5 4NH
In this engaging talk renowned writer and historian Tracy Borman provides a fascinating insight into the Georgian court and reveals a woman who was far more than mistress to the King: a dedicated patron of the arts; a lively and talented intellectual in her own right; a victim of violence and adultery; a passionate advocate for the rights of women long before the dawn of feminism. Tracy Borman is an historian, writer and broadcaster who has worked for a wide range of historic properties and national heritage organisations, including the Heritage Lottery Fund, The National Archives and English Heritage. She is currently the Chief Executive of the Heritage Education Trust and joint Chief Curator for Historic Royal Palaces.
