Shappi Khorsandi: Mistress and Misfit
Friday March 23rd 2018 7:45 pm - 9:45 pm
The Corn Exchange
Newbury, Berkshire

The star of Live at the Apollo, QI and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow presents the story of England’s unsung heroine.

For too many years Emma Hamilton has been known as just ‘Nelson’s mistress’, a bit of a harlot. Women’s lib wasn’t a ‘thing’ in Georgian times. With her razor sharp wit and deliciously mischievous delivery, Shappi takes us through how Emma moved mountains to haul herself from ‘scullery maid’ to ‘Lady Hamilton’.
