Nicola Tallis, Ninya Mikhaila, and Amber Butchart rummage through the Tudor wardrobe.

This event will take place in the British Library Theatre. It will be simultaneously live streamed on the British Library platform. Tickets may be booked either to attend in person (physical) or to watch on our platform (online) either live or within 48 hours on catch up. Physical ticket bookers will also be sent a bonus link to the online event. Viewing links will be sent out shortly before the event.

Nicola Tallis,Amber Butchart and and Ninya Mikhaila explore how clothes, jewellery, fashions and fabrics not only defined courtly dress but locked the population into a rigid social hierarchy – from Sumptuary Laws and symbolism to portraiture and politics.

This event is part of TudorFest and produced in association with HistFest.

Please arrive no later than 15 minutes before the start time of the event. We are committed to the safety of our event bookers. Find out more about how we are welcoming you to the Library safely.
