Lucy Worsley

Esteemed historian Lucy Worsley’s theatre tour continues this week as she explores the history of our hygiene and homely habits over the past 800 years. 

Through the bedroom, bathroom, living room, and kitchen, Lucy Worsley explores what people actually did in bed, in the bath, at the table, and at the stove. From sauce-stirring to breast-feeding, teeth-cleaning to getting dressed & getting married, this talk will make you see your home with new eyes. We will also be answering why for centuries, people feared fruit, why medical people slept sitting up, and why the flushing toilet took two centuries to catch on. These questions as well as much more weird and wonderful questions you have never thought of will be covered.
