Charlotte White at Chalke History Festival

June 28 @ 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm

You will find me in the Speakers’ Corner area of Chalke History Festival – very much after the watershed – discussing Barbara Villiers, Charles II’s most vilified mistress and a source of constant fascination to Samuel Pepys. What can we learn about the woman behind the reputation from Sam’s diary? What made him buy four identical prints of her face? What was it about this ‘nasty woman’ that so enthralled a king?

Talks in Speakers’ Corner are free to all visitors. Just pull up a pew, bring a drink, sit back, and be entertained.
