· HM The Queen’s Tutbury Castle  - Katherine Swynford - Wonderfully charismatic, Tutbury Castle curator and historian, Lesley Smith, takes us on a journey through the height of medieval England, when one couple caused a great scandal across the nation. They were Katherine Swynford and John of Gaunt. John was duke of Lancaster, the third son of King Edward III, and the richest man in England. Katherine was John’s mistress, and their passionate love affair was considered both shocking and extraordinary, even at a court known for luxury and licentious behaviour. However, this was no casual affair, but one of the great love stories of history. Travel back in time to when there really were knights in shining armour, and hear Katherine’s own account of her life and her love.
