Marlowe's London: A Discovery

Date: Saturday 09 April 2011, starting at 11:00am.

Speaker: Andrew Davies, who is an author, broadcaster, lecturer for NADFAS and the National Trust, and Extra-Mural Tutor for London, Essex and The Open University.

Venue: The Rose Theatre, Bankside, 56 Park Street, London, SE1 9AS [Map]. Nearest Station: London Bridge.

Info: Open to both members and non-members. Contact Event Organiser Frieda Barker for more info.

Booking: Tickets priced £10 each (£5 for concessions) can be booked in advance by application to the Society Treasurer, Bruce Young and by using one of the usual payment methods (cheque, internet bank transfer, or PayPal). Tickets can also be purchased on the day at The Rose box office, if still available.

Summary: Marlowe's turbulent life reflected the rumbustious changes sweeping through Elizabethan London. Here was an invigorating city marked by Armada, religious conflict, intrigue, cruelty and rapid social and economic change. The lecture will explore this extraordinary ferment.

Facilities: Note that The Rose has limited toilet facilities, although patrons are able to use the facilities at The New Globe around the corner. Tea and coffee will be on sale.
