Upcoming Books, Events, and Exhibitions for July 2020

I finally have enough things to do a round-up post again! Yay!

Books

Tudor Textiles by Eleri Lynn was actually released back in April in the UK and US and I completely missed it, so better late than never:

Laura Brennan’s Elizabeth I: The Making of a Queen was released back in April in the UK and is now out in the US too:

Nicola Tallis’ book on Margaret Beaufort Uncrowned Queen: The Fateful Life of Margaret Beaufort, Tudor Matriarch (UK title) Uncrowned Queen: The Life of Margaret Beaufort, Mother of the Tudors (US title) was released back in late 2019 in the UK and will be out in late July in the US:

And finally, Glenn Richardson’s biography Wolsey (part of the Routledge Historical Biographies) will be out July 20 in both the UK and US:

Exhibits

To celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Field of Cloth of Gold, Hampton Court Palace was due to open a new exhibition on April 10, but is now delayed until the Palace interiors re-open on July 17. In the meantime, enjoy the information about it on the Palace’s website.

The Royal Museums Greenwich will be uniting the three versions of the Armada Portrait for the first time for the Faces of a Queen exhibition. I would love to see this so I’m going to be jealous of anyone who gets to visit! (This exhibition is currently closed but this is still some interesting information about the portraits on the page.)

The exhibit has been pushed back to February 2021, so I’ll post it again in the new year!
