Lucy Worsley’s Reins of Power

Ok this is possibly the most bonkers programme you’ll see this year … I learned to perform the seventeenth century art of horse-dancing, as practiced by Duke of Newcastle in his Riding House at Bolsover Castle, one of England’s most curious buildings, and also the topic of my PhD thesis.  There are more pictures here, and you can see my Bridget-Jones style approach to riding lessons here!
