Boudica: A Monologue by Lesley Smith

Tuesday 28 May | 19:30 at Lichfield Cathedral
The story of Boudica, although much of it is cloaked in poor evidence, is extraordinary. When Britannia was a remote outpost of the Roman Empire and still divided into many Celtic kingdoms, she led a rebellion against the Roman invaders. Gathering support from other tribes, the red-headed queen swept across England, and came close to driving the Romans out altogether. This is her story.
