Fit for a King: Power, Glory and Fashion at the Tudor Court
- What:Membership Events
- Where:SC, Hochhauser
Henry VIII wasn’t all cruelty and obesity. His court – and that of his daughter Elizabeth – glittered with all the riches of the age.
At the Tudor court, glorious dress, stunning portraiture and even elaborate armour could be used to project an image of one’s status, attain power and make a statement about the sexual politics of the court. Historian, author, broadcaster and award-winning academic Dr Suzannah Lipscomb will outline the symbols that the Tudors instinctively understood and reveal the desires and anxieties of their world.
