A Theatrical Performance by: Sue Macmillan and Hannah McDowall in the Guildhall Ballroom
Be transported back to medieval Grantham and the court of King Arthur as we weave together the real history of Queen Eleanor, and a legend of Camelot. In 1290 Eleanor died in Lincoln, her heartbroken husband Edward I, erected 12 monuments in her honour stretching from Lincoln to Westminster, including Grantham.
Through the ancient art of storytelling you will enter Edward and Eleanor’s world, seeing the contradictory and glorious powerhouse she was; property magnate, mother, lover, bookworm, huntress, crusader and chess champion.
