Event Description

“Remember, remember the 5th of November. Gunpowder, Treason & Plot”

But what is the real story behind the gun powder plot of 1605?

What was the ultimate aim of the plot? How close did the conspirators come to blowing up King James and parliament? Was this a blow for freedom or a bloody terrorist act by religious extremists?

In this talk, you will learn about the real Guy Fawkes and peel back the myths and take a journey into England on the 5th November 1605…

  • Duration: 60 mins
  • Online Zoom event: Join from your computer, phone or tablet (no replay available)

Meet the Host, Chris

Chris Green (“The History Chap”) tells the stories that bring British history to life.. A graduate in History, Chris combines a deep knowledge of his subjects, with a natural flair for story telling. Audiences have described his talks as interesting, enjoyable and engaging.

Chris lives in the historic market town of Nantwich in Cheshire. Aside from his passion for history, Chris enjoys walking and cooks a mean Thai curry!

Last year, he made his debut as a stand up comedian in Liverpool (and survived to tell the tale!).

His website is: www.thehistorychap.com

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
