Upcoming Exhibitions and Events for June 2013

Amazingly, I don’t have any books on the spreadsheet for this month. That really only means that there are books coming out in June that I’ve missed since I know a month can’t go by without *something* related to Tudor history being published. 😉


* The next Sudeley Castle Tudor Fun Day will be on June 23. Check their website for more information.

* The play Fallen in Love: The Secret Heart of Anne Boleyn, will be performed at the Tower of London and Gippeswyk Hall, Ipswich for several more performances in June. More information and links for tickets are available at their website.

New exhibitions

* Shakespeare and London, an exhibition by the London Metropolitan Archives, opened this past week and will run through September 26, 2013. One of the highlights of the exhibition is a 1613 deed signed by Shakespeare and is one of only six known examples of his signature. If you want to be sure to see that item, please check the website since it is only on display for some of the dates the exhibition runs.

* The National Museum of Scotland will be opening an exhibition on Mary Queen of Scots on June 28 that will run through November 17. (I’m amused that it opens on Henry VIII’s birthday and closes on Elizabeth I’s accession day.)

Continuing exhibitions

The Victoria & Albert Museum‘s exhibition Treasures of the Royal Courts: Tudors, Stuarts, and the Russian Tsars is still on and runs through July 14, 2013.

The exhibition In Fine Style: The Art of Tudor and Stuart Fashion opened in May and runs through October 6. More information is available at the Royal Collection website, which also includes an online gallery of exhibition highlights and a TEDx talk by the exhibition curator.

  1. Lloyd Evans of The Spectator barracked Fallen in Love, conceding that Emma Connell as Anne Boleyn is “stunningly beautiful” but describing the George Boleyn character as a “bumptious, greedy posh boy who, if he lived today, would be a Mayfair hedge funder with an Aston Martin, two mistresses and herpes.” Cruel, but hilarious.
