'Secrets, Scandal and Salacious Gossip of the Royal Court, 1660 to 1830'
Sarah says: "I wear one of my beautiful costumes and talk about all the naughty bits of history you would probably not have learnt about at school! I discuss royal mistresses, prostitution, sexual diseases of the time and the methods used to prevent STDs and unwanted pregnancies."
