THE story of one of Britain’s greatest historical figures will be brought to life in the atmospheric surroundings of Turton Tower.

Leading actor and producer Dean Taylor will stage Sir Walter and his Queen on Saturday in the recently refurbished Tower Suite.

The production - a fund-raiser for the Tower - is the company’s latest re-telling of history following Warts ‘n’ All: The Truth about Cromwell and Dickie’s Meadow: The Real Richard 111.

Expect sea shanties and some rollicking adventures on the high seas.

Tickets include supper by candlelight and there is a licensed bar. Details from 01204 862203.
