Lady in the Veil - 11th July
'Lady in the Veil' is a one-woman performance in the character of Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, who lived at Middlethorpe Hall in 1713. She had a fascinating life...and all will be revealed in this entertaining show. A two-course luncheon with wine will follow.
Lady Mary Wortley Montagu was a distinguished resident here in 1713, and you will have seen her portrait hanging in the stairwell at Middlethorpe Hall.
Aged 27, she set out for Turkey as the British Ambassador's wife. She visited harems and trialled the Turkish method of smallpox inoculation on her only son before championing it in England. Aged 52, she is travelling again, seeking emotional satisfaction...and Count Francesco Algarotti.
Georgina will perform this one-woman show 'Lady in the Veil' - both highly entertaining and informative.
