A stroll through the history of Keynsham Abbey, once one of the most powerful and wealthy of the English medieval abbeys. As well of some of the major events in Keynsham Abbey’s history, we shall look at some of its people such as William Earl of Gloucester and his daughter Isabella, the first wife of King John; Henry Stafford, Duke of Buckingham, who was widely thought to have been responsible for the death of the Princes in the Tower; and Sir Jasper Tudor, uncle to Henry VII, whose funeral procession brought Keynsham to a standstill.
This event will take place in the Apostle Room, Clifton Cathedral, Pembroke Road, BS8 3BX and will commence at 19.45. Tea and coffee are available from 19.15. Off-street parking is available and Number 8 buses run close by.
