‘Five of the country’s foremost historians on the Tudor period present four different presentations. The day will conclude with a panel discussion with our speakers, who will debate the day’s talks and take questions from the audience.

If you are interested in the Tudor period or women’s history then join us to find out about the extraordinary women who refused to be overshadowed by kings, Mary Tudor and her complex relationship with her father King Henry VIII, the thirteen day reign of Lady Jane Grey and find out how, as we near Advent and Christmas, Tudor queens and their court made merriment during the festive season.

The day will conclude with a panel discussion featuring the speakers where the audience can ask questions and discuss what has been spoken about during the talks on the day.
