Murray Jacobs one of our most entertaining and informative speakers has created a new presentation in his series of Hidden Cambridge – ‘King’s College Chapel – Untold Secrets’.  Regarding the rather famous painting by Rubens in the chapel, how did it end up there? Its actual journey shows that “fake news” was alive and well even in 1961!  And it shouldn’t be forgotten that it survived a shocking criminal act in 1974. 

A tragic love story – two men from King’s were in love with the same woman. It involved one of Britain’s greatest poets and the cousin of one of Britain’s greatest actors. 

Reminders from both of these stories can still be seen in the chapel today - if you know where to look! The event will take place via Zoom and there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
