An Evening with 'Margaret Beaufort'

As part of our 200th birthday celebrations, we are delighted to invite you to:
 
“AN EVENING WITH MARGARET BEAUFORT”
 
Margaret, accompanied by her grandson Henry VIII, (aka Margaret and Ken Wainwright), will provide an insight into the remarkable life and local connection of this famous woman.
 
Margaret Beaufort was an amazing woman from Bourne, Collyweston and Maxey who had a profound impact on history but has been virtually forgotten in our Lincolnshire locality. She became the matriarch of the Tudor dynasty and  her legacy through her symbols and academia is still far-reaching today.
 
Margaret Wainwright, as author, will talk of her inspiration and desire to bring her book to print and will be available to sign copies of it.
  
 All proceeds go towards the Bourne Town Hall Trust renovation project

Bill, Dave, Ned and Rob, four Bourne-based musicians who all appreciate a pint or two of real ale, met at The Anchor, Eastgate.

They all have extensive experience of playing in bands of diverse musical genres: folk, blues, soul, pop / party and rock. Their love of music, performing live and good beer, led to the formation, in 2017, of Totally Anchored.

Over the last four years they have developed an eclectic set list of covers of songs by artists including the Rolling Stones, Chuck Berry, The Travelling Wilburys, Stereophonics and the Cure.

The band encourages audience interaction for a fun occasion.

So, please join Totally Anchored to celebrate the bicentenary of Bourne’s Old Town Hall.
