Tudormania: the Beheadings

Venue: Room G04, Birkbeck, School of Arts
Booking details: Free entry; booking required

Join our panellists to discuss why Tudor heads rolled – and why the axe fell. If beheading was for the best, what happened to the rest? Those beheaded included Lady Jane Gray, Lady Rochford, Mary Stuart and many lost their lives again and again in novels, films and TV. After the talks there will be an opportunity to share your views with our speakers novelist and Birkbeck alumni Liz Fremantle (who will read from her novel Sisters of Treason), publisher George Morely, teacher Noeleen Murphy, and Judith Hudson and Lou Horton (Birkbeck).

This is a free event, but please reserve your place using our online booking form here.
