Renowned historian Lucy Worsley returns to Cambridge for one night only with an illustrated exploration of our fascination with murder.
Already covering the history of this very British obsession in a BBC television series and book, Lucy Worsley shares its secrets and explores the history 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.
Lucy Worsley is Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces and a hugely popular writer, broadcaster and speaker. Recent TV series include Lucy Worsley: Mozart’s London Odyssey, Six Wives with Lucy Worsley and American History’s Biggest Fibs with Lucy Worsley.
