Actions and Detail Panel
Tudormania: the Beheadings
Fri 19 May 2017, 18:00 – 19:25 BST
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).
Please contact the organiser if you have any additional access requirements.
