Upcoming Books, Exhibitions, and Events for July 2013


As the 500th anniversary of the Battle of Flodden approaches in September, a new book is being released on July 4th in the UK and in late August in the US. I have an advanced copy of Fatal Rivalry but unfortunately, like with so many books, I haven’t had a chance to read it yet! I might be able to get to it before the actual anniversary of the battle though. 🙂

And Elizabeth Norton has another Tudor book coming out – this time about the Boleyn Women. It is listed for the 28th of July in the UK and just July for the US (with a one to three month delivery, it might just be the UK copy sent over if you order from the US Amazon store.)


The next Sudeley Castle Tudor Fun Day is on July 21st. These always look like fun – maybe I’ll get to visit during one some day!

Continuing exhibitions

Just two weeks left on this one:

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.

Shakespeare and London, an exhibition by the London Metropolitan Archives, opened in May 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 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.

The National Museum of Scotland’s exhibition on Mary Queen of Scots opened on June 28 and will run through November 17.
