RENOWNED historian Lucy Worsley is returning to Christchurch for one night only with an illustrated exploration of our fascination with murder.

The chief curator at Historic Royal Palaces in London and popular TV presenter will be at the Regent Centre in Christchurch on Saturday September 4 for ‘A Very British Murder’.

Regent Centre General Manager Matthew Vass-White said: “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.”

The Regent Centre team is delighted to welcome Lucy back following her sell-out show in 2018, ‘Jane Austin at Home’.

Tickets for the event, which will start at 7.30pm, are £27, with concessions at £25.
