Is Sutton Part of Black History?
Thursday 26th October 7.30pm
A Friends of Honeywood Event for Black History Month


The baptism in Sutton on 15th April 1677 of John Sango, ‘a Moor’, in Sutton is a reminder that Africans and people of African descent have been living and working in Britain for centuries. Most came here because of Britain’s involvement in the slavery business and colonialism. As across the rest of the country there were many involved in the slavery business and then colonialism who lived or had family connections with Sutton. Sean Creighton, an independent historian of slavery, abolition and British Black history, will discuss these connections and the lives of the people involved

Tickets are £4.50 (£3.50 Friends)
Please phone 020 8642 4778 to book
 

Anne Boleyn: A King's Obsession
Thursday 23rd November 7.30pm
A Friends of Honeywood Event

We are delighted to once again welcome back the renowned local author Alison Weir to Honeywood Museum

Fresh from the sophisticated palaces of Burgundy and France, Anne draws attention at the English court, embracing the play of courtly love. But when the King commands, nothing is ever a game. She has a spirit worthy of a crown – and a crown is what she seeks.  And so she embarks on her perilous course, which will plunge a kingdom into turmoil.

Alison Weir weaves new research and theories into the dark, powerful tale of Henry VIII’s second wife - a woman ahead of her time, who dared to question traditional concepts of femininity, and whose ambition drove her to gamble with the fickle nature of a dangerous king.

Mulled wine and mince pies included in the ticket price!

Tickets are £6 (£5 Friends). Please phone 020 8642 4778 to book
