TudorFest

Take a fresh look at the Tudor period with our one day festival.

The Tudor period was about so much more than kings, queens and royal scandal. In this special day of talks and discussions we delve into rich alternative histories of the Tudor period to explore England in a global context, unravel the symbolism of jewels and restrictive sumptuary laws, highlight the Black presence in England, investigate often obscured LGBT+ histories and detail how mobility and movement across the known world shaped perceptions of humanity.

This event will take place in the British Library Theatre. Separate sessions will also be simultaneously live streamed on the British Library platform.
