Description


We do hope you can join historia Rebecca Rideal for this fascinating lecture.

At 2pm, on Tuesday 30 January 1649, King Charles I stepped onto a wooden scaffold outside Whitehall’s Banqueting House. In front of an audience of thousands, he was beheaded as a traitor. His execution followed years of civil war and unrest and represented one of the starkest manifestations of “people power” in British history.

Using contemporaneous accounts, Historian Rebecca Rideal tells the story of the regicide of Charles I.

Rebecca Rideal is a specialist factual television producer and writer, whose credits include: Adventurers’ Guide to Britain, Bloody Tales of the Tower, and the triple Emmy award winning series David Attenborough’s First Life. She is the author of 1666: PLAGUE, WAR AND HELLFIRE (UK: John Murray, US: Thomas Dunne Books) and has written extensively for the press, including the Guardian, New Statesman, and BBC History Magazine. Rebecca is the co-founder of HistFest, a brand new festival that aims to entertain and educate.
