Beckenham Storytelling Circle presents 'The Stoney Stratford Kidnapping' told by Simon Waterfield
Imagine being an innkeeper who is told that the king will be staying the night in your inn.
You aren’t expecting a kidnapping that would lead to a mystery that has enthralled the world for 600 years.
This is the story of the innkeeper at the Rose and Crown in Stoney Stratford.
For good or ill, the soon-to-be Edward V and his retinue are on their way to London for his coronation when they meet Edward’s uncle, Richard Duke of Gloucester, in the Rose and Crown.
This story is suitable for adults and children 14+. It is also a ghost story with local connections suitable for the season.
All proceeds go to St Christopher’s Hospice. Find out more about the event here.
