An illustrated tour through the dark story of our fascination with murder, with renowned historian Lucy Worsley.

Lucy has covered the history of this very British obsession in a book and BBC TV series. Here she shares its secrets and explores the history of this phenomenon in forensic detail, examining not only the crimes themselves but also how murder became a form of middle-class entertainment through novels, plays, artefacts and the press. From a Regency serial killer to Agatha Christie, this is the story of how crime was turned into art.


Make an afternoon of it and treat yourself to a delicious Sunday lunch here at the Centre before the show at 1.30pm. Enjoy a carvery with a choice of two meats, seasonal vegetables, a choice of dessert and tea or coffee (vegetarian option available).  Please state any dietary requirements at the time of booking.
