BISC – Hidden Histories of Herstmonceux

Virtual Event

Join Dr. Christian Lloyd at the Bader International Study Centre (BISC) as he reads and discusses extracts from a new book he is co-writing on the unknown histories of Herstmonceux Castle.

If you are interested in art history, discover the odd story of why Joseph Mallord William Turner created a dreadful painting of the castle after being commissioned by Mad Jack Fuller. Into military history? Hear how the castle came close to destruction in World War II. If it's ghost stories you're after, find out why the Grey Lady was featured in an American newspaper in 1930.

All these moments and more will be covered in Dr. Lloyd's talk with an opportunity to ask questions.
