A Visit from Queen Victoria
Tuesday, August 4, 7:00PM
In 1837, teenaged Victoria ascended to the British throne, untrained and innocent. Those who would try to usurp her power underestimated this self-willed, intelligent young woman whose mettle supported her through her 63-year reign. Using Queen Victoria's diaries and letters, this program reveals the personal details of this powerful yet humane woman. Sally Mummey performs this living history in proper 19th Century clothing resplendent with Royal Orders. Sponsored by the NH Humanities Council, the Meredith Historical Society and the Friends of the Meredith Library. Light refreshments will be served. Free and open to the public.
