Go on an evening salacious gossip tour as part of The Wild, the Beautiful and the Damned, an exhibition on the mistresses of serial (and serious) womaniser Charles Stuart Jr at Hampton Court Palace.

Find out about these feisty women and their risky careers in Harlots, Housewives and Heroines: a c17 History for Girls by HRP chief curator Dr Lucy Worsley for BBC4.

See my photos of Hampton Court Palace. Slut walk has never looked so good!

Tickets cost £25, including a glass of champagne, and can be booked online via this link. It starts at the West Gate at 19.30 prompt.

    After a whistlestop architectural tour at Clock Court, our costumed guide led us for champagne before the tone descended. We learned how proper scandal was done with style and panache. I was pleased that there was no discrimination of rank or gender. Barbara Villiers had both the king and his illegimate daughter as lovers. Nell Gwyn was a commoner who became a royal mistress. John Wilmot, the Earl of Rochester of Signo Dildo fame (see review of The Rover) made another appearance as a flamboyant bisexual. We went backwards in time from the Georgians and finished with Charles II and his women at The Wild, the Beautiful and the Damned. Deliciously naughty and fabulous!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
