Join us at Cowdray Hall for a talk by Dr Caroline Adams on Elizabeth I’s only visit to West Sussex. In 1591 Elizabeth I’s summer progress brought her south through Surrey into West Sussex, stopping at Cowdray for a week and the City of Chichester for several days. What happened, and what was it like for her hosts and the people on her progress?
