A renowned historian is coming to town for one night only to explore the country's fascination with murder.

Historian Lucy Worsley will be appearing at the Guildhall Arts Centre in Grantham with her show 'A Very British Murder' on Wednesday, August 25, at 7.30pm after already having sold out at Stamford Arts Centre.

Lucy has already covered the history of this obsession in a BBC television series and book, exploring the history in forensic detail and examining how murder has become a form of middle-class entertainment.
