Event description
Join us online with the British Library to explore the story of the two iconic sovereign queens

About this event

In October 2021 the British Library opens the first major exhibition to consider Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots together. Using original documents and objects, it takes a fresh look at the story of the two iconic sovereign queens, revealing how from amicable beginnings and sisterly affection, their relationship turned into one of suspicion, distrust and betrayal.

Exhibition lead curator Dr Andrea Clarke will give an illustrated introductory talk, providing an insight into the creation of the show and discussing some of the key objects that will be on display.

The talk will be followed by a Q & A session where u3a members will have the opportunity to ask questions.
