Benjamin Woolley tells the scandalous story of George Villiers, Duke of Buckingham, lover and murderer of James 1st - Britain's first Stuart King - in 1625. The rise of Villiers from minor gentry to Royal power seemed to defy gravity and in this beautifully illustrated event we explore the life of James 1st and hear the intriguing story surrounding his mysterious death.
