I only have one book on my tracking sheet for this month, although I suspect there are others that I’ve missed since I had a hard time keeping up with publications that were delayed during the pandemic. I also have one or two more things I am tracking but I don’t have release date info on them yet. So, that means just one new release this month:
Sarah Bryson’s The Brandon Men: In the Shadow of Kings is due out in print in mid-June in the UK and on Kindle in the US (print in the US next month). Nice to see some more books on the Brandons!
No new exhibitions this month, but most of the ones I mentioned last month are still going on for a while:
The Royal Museums Greenwich united the three versions of the Armada Portrait for the first time for the Faces of a Queen exhibition. I’m not sure of the end date on this one, but I’m guessing it will be on for a while since it was delayed for so long.
And the Tudors to Windsors: British Royal Portraits exhibition that has been around the world (including here in Texas!) opened in Greenwich on May 28 and will run through October 31.
The celebrations of the 500th anniversary of The Field of the Cloth of Gold, Gold and Glory: Henry VIII and the French King at Hampton Court Palace were delayed for about a year, but they finally started on May 20 of this year.
And finally, the celebrations of the 500th anniversary of the birth of William Cecil, Lord Burghley at Burghley House were also delayed because of the pandemic, but the did begin this year starting back in March and will run throughout the year.
