Tudormania: the Beheadings

Event Date: 
19 May 2017

Early Modern Arts Week events at Birkbeck

6pm-7.25pm, Room G04, 43 Gordon Square

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,Jane 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), teacher Noeleen Murphy, and Judith Hudson and Lou Horton (Birkbeck).
