Upcoming Books, Exhibitions, and Events for June 2022

Sorry this is a little late this month! As I mentioned on the Picture of the Week post, last weekend I was finishing up moving across town and then I was pretty exhausted (pro tip – don’t move in 100°F heat) but had to go back to work right away since our summer research programs started on Wednesday. Not a very restful start to the summer around here!

Books

Elizabeth I’s Final Years: Her Favourites and Her Fighting Men by Robert Stedall got past me with its UK release last month, has a US release at the end of this month (or early in July… I have two different dates, but I decided to go ahead and post it now):

Next up, Gloriana: Elizabeth I and the Art of Queenship by Linda Collins and Siobhan Clarke will be out in the middle of the month in the UK and on Kindle in the US (I didn’t see a release date for a US dead-tree version, but will update if I find one):

And finally, Estelle Paranque’s latest work, Blood, Fire and Gold: The Story of Elizabeth I and Catherine de Medici will be out at the end of the month in the UK and later this year in the US:

Continuing Exhibitions

The Tudors: Passion, Power, and Politics is now on display at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool. The exhibition opened on May 21, 2022 and runs through August 29, 2022. The exhibit will display, for the first time in 20 years, the Westminster Tournament Roll that features John Blanke (read more in this article from The Guardian).

To celebrate the 500th anniversary of Anne Boleyn’s first recorded appearance at Court, her childhood home of Hever Castle is putting on the exhibition Becoming Anne: Connections, Culture, Court. The exhibition opened on March 4 and runs through November and is included with admission to the castle.

Upcoming Books, Exhibitions, and Events for May 2022

Hello May! I know a lot of you are ready for the warmer weather May will start to bring, but I’m not quite ready for it myself. My month of May is going to be so busy and I don’t like instantly being drenched in sweat every time I go outside. 😛

Books

As I expected, there was at least one book from previous months that I missed (I’m sure there are many more…) Elizabethan Secret Agent: The Untold Story of William Ashby (1536-1593) by Timothy Ashby was released at the end of March:

And Amy Licence’s Tudor Roses: From Margaret Beaufort to Elizabeth I will be released in mid-May in the US after a release earlier in the year in the UK:

New Exhibitions

If you miss The Tudor: Passion, Power, and Politics at the Holburne Museum, you will have a chance to catch it next at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool. The exhibition will open on May 21, 2022 and run through August 29, 2022. The exhibit will display, for the first time in 20 years, the Westminster Tournament Roll that features John Blanke (read more in this article from The Guardian).

Continuing Exhibitions

Ending soon: The Tudors: Passion, Power and Politics opened at The Holburne Museum in Bath at the end of January and will run through May 8.

The exhibition opened on March 4 and run through November and is included with admission to the castle.

Upcoming Books, Exhibitions, and Events for April 2022

Not a huge round-up this month! Which means I really don’t have much of an excuse for falling behind on posting this.

Books

No new book releases this month, which means – say it with me! – I probably missed some things. But I do have a couple of updates on books that I’ve mentioned previously.

Clare Hunter’s Embroidering Her Truth: Mary, Queen of Scots and the Language of Power that I mentioned last month is available for order in the US now too, so here are updated links to the UK and US Amazon stores:

And The Tudor Sheriff by Jonathan McGovern is now out in the US after being released back in January in the UK.

Upcoming Books, Exhibitions, and Events for March 2022

Welcome to March! Even though we managed to make it through winter without any power outages this year, we still had a few annoying mini winter storms so I’m ready to welcome spring and all the lovely wildflowers we get here in Texas.

Books

A couple of UK releases from February will be released in March in the US.

First up is Cecily Bonville-Grey – Marchioness of Dorset by Sarah J. Hodder that was released just last week in the UK and will be out on March 1 in the US:

And House of Tudor: A Grisly History by Mickey Mayhew was just released in the UK and will be out at the end of March in the US. (I originally had a May US release date, but now I’m seeing March for the paperback.)

And in new releases…

This one really caught my eye – I’ve been doing needlework for over 30 years and I’ve dabbled in doing some historical needlework (primarily blackwork) but I’ve only recently gotten interested in the wider history of needlework and textiles. So when I saw this upcoming release from Clare Hunter, Embroidering Her Truth: Mary, Queen of Scots and the Language of Power I was intrigued! It is due out on March 17 in the UK, but I don’t have info on a US release yet. I’ll update it when I find out more.

And The House of Dudley: A New History of Tudor England by Joanne Paul is due out at the end of March in the UK and I also don’t have info on a US release for this book, but I’ll keep an eye out!

A couple of books that were released at the end of 2021 in the UK will come out near the end of February in the US.

First up, Crown & Sceptre: A New History of the British Monarchy by Tracy Borman:

And Richard Mackinder’s Bosworth: The Archaeology of the Battlefield will be released on the 24th:

And we’ve got a few new releases this month as well! It looks like things are maybe finally starting to get back on track.

Amy Licence’s latest book Tudor Roses: From Margaret Beaufort to Elizabeth I will be out in mid-February in the UK and later in the spring in the US:

And next is Cecily Bonville-Grey – Marchioness of Dorset by Sarah J. Hodder. I’m not sure there has been much written about Cecily so this is good to see! It will be out near the end of February in the UK and in early March in the US.

And finally, House of Tudor: A Grisly History by Mickey Mayhew will be out on February 28 in the UK and in May in the US.

New Exhibitions

Upcoming Books, Exhibitions, and Events for January 2022

Happy New Year! I know a lot of people are saying “wow – 2021 went by fast” and somedays I’ve felt that too. But on the other hand, at times it felt like it lasted a decade (especially one particular week in February for us here in Texas). Here’s hoping for a good 2022 – I think we all deserve a break at this point!

Books

A few things from last year were released in the new year here in the US, including both of the “Book of Days” books from Tudor Times:

And I originally had Phillipa Vincent Connolly’s Disability and the Tudors: All the King’s Fools out in the US in February, but it looks like both the hardcover and Kindle editions are available now in both the UK and US:

I also had mentioned Bosworth: The Archaeology of the Battlefield by Richard Mackinder as out back in November in the UK, but I think it might have been delayed (as soooo many things have been of late) and it is now due out at the end of January in the UK and on Kindle in the US. The US hardcover edition is due out at the end of February.

Finally, in new releases, an academic work (i.e. very expensive) titled The Tudor Sheriff: A Study in Early Modern Administration by Jonathan McGovern is due out on January 21 2022 in the UK and on March 1 in the US.

Events

Peterborough Cathedral‘s annual Katharine of Aragon Festival for 2022 will be held on January 27-30 this year.

Continuing Exhibitions

Ending soon!

The Getty Museum in Los Angeles, California is holding an exhibition titled Holbein: Capturing Character in the Renaissance that opened on October 19, 2021 and will run through January 9, 2022.

The British Library‘s new exhibition on Elizabeth I and Mary Queen of Scots opened on October 8 and will run through February 2022. You can book tickets at the website linked above.

No books and exhibitions round-up for December

It looks like I don’t have much on my tracking sheet for December (and, as always, that probably means I’m missing stuff) so there wont be a round-up post this month.

I do want to mention the British Library TudorFest that I linked last month is on December 4th and there are some online events for those of us who can’t be in London and that Faces of a Queen now has a closing date of December 2021. I wish I could have seen that exhibit in person! And check out the November post for a couple of other continuing exhibitions.

Upcoming Books, Exhibitions, and Events for November 2021

Books

A number of new books are due out in November in the UK and hopefully the global supply-chain woes won’t interfere with their releases!

First up is Tracy Borman’s newest work Crown & Sceptre: A New History of the British Monarchy which is due out on November 18 in the UK and will be out in February in the US.

Next is Disability and the Tudors: All the King’s Fools by Phillipa Vincent Connolly, which has already been delayed thanks to the pandemic so I hope it actually is finally released at the end of the month! It’s also due out in February in the US.

And finally, Bosworth: The Archaeology of the Battlefield by Richard Mackinder is also due out at the end of the month and in February in the US.

And a few books that have already been released in the UK will be released in November in the US.

First up, King & Collector: Henry VIII and the Art of Kingship by Linda Collins and Siobhan Clarke will be out in the US on November 1.

And Amy Licence’s Living Like a Tudor: Woodsmoke and Sage: A Sensory Journey Through Tudor England will be released in the US on November 2 with a slightly different title: Living Like a Tudor: Woodsmoke and Sage: A Sensory Journey Through Tudor England.

And Susan Doran’s companion book to the British Library exhibition Elizabeth and Mary: Royal Cousins, Rival Queens will be out in paperback on November 15 in the US.

New Exhibition

Only “new” this month because I missed it when I was writing last month’s round-up!

The Getty Museum in Los Angeles, California is holding an exhibition titled Holbein: Capturing Character in the Renaissance that opened on October 19, 2021 and will run through January 9, 2022. It’s always nice to be able to feature a Tudor-related exhibition over here in the US, even if this one is too far away for me to travel to see.

Continuing Exhibitions

The British Library‘s new exhibition on Elizabeth I and Mary Queen of Scots opened on October 8 and will run through February 2022. You can book tickets at the website linked above.

The British Library will also be hosting TudorFest on December 4 both online and at the British Library Theatre. Click here for the line-up and ticket details.

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.

Entertainment

The Royal Shakespeare Company‘s production of the theatrical adaptation of The Mirror and the Light – the third book of Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall Trilogy – opened at the Gielgud Theatre in London on September 23 and will run through January 23, 2022.

Upcoming Books, Exhibitions, and Events for October 2021

Books

I have lots of stuff for November, but only one new book on my tracking sheet for this month – Susan Doran’s Elizabeth and Mary: Royal Cousins, Rival Queens which is tied to the new British Library exhibition mentioned below. It’s due out in the UK on October 8, the day the exhibition opens and will be out in early 2022 in the US.

Entertainment

The Royal Shakespeare Company‘s production of the theatrical adaptation of The Mirror and the Light – the third book of Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall Trilogy – opened at the Gielgud Theatre in London on September 23 and will run through January 23, 2022.

New Exhibition

The British Library‘s new exhibition on Elizabeth I and Mary Queen of Scots opens on October 8 and will run through February 2022. You can book tickets at the website linked above.

From the exhibition website:

Step back into a dangerous world of plots, espionage and treachery to explore the turbulent relationship between Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots in their own words.

In an England and Scotland engulfed in religious turmoil and with civil wars raging on the continent, this major exhibition follows the storm that threatened these two powerful women as they struggled for control of the British Isles.

They never met but their fates were intertwined. From their shared beginnings, facing the challenge of ruling in a man’s world, feel the tension escalate as handwritten letters between the queens show how paranoia turned sisterly affection to suspicion.

With the threat of conspiracy ever present, communications written in code reveal how Elizabeth used a network of spies to trap and destroy her rival, bringing the dramatic story to a swift and bloody conclusion.

Encounter some of the Library’s most exceptional 16th-century manuscripts and printed works on display: Elizabeth’s stirring ‘heart and stomach of a king’ speech; the papal bull excommunicating Elizabeth; Mary’s 10-page plea for freedom.

These sit alongside haunting objects which reveal the complex story behind the two queens’ reigns. Tales of imprisonment and escape. Elizabeth’s speech to Parliament on her cousin’s fate. Eye-witness accounts of Mary’s execution.

Enter the dark side of the 16th century. Meet the real Elizabeth and Mary.

Continuing Exhibitions

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.

Both of these wrap up at the end of October so time is running out!

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.

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.

Upcoming Books, Exhibitions, and Events for September 2021

Welcome September!! (well, in a few days). Even though we lucked out and didn’t have a soul-sucking and miserable summer here in central Texas this year (I think the weather gods were trying to apologize for The Big Freeze back in February) I’m ALWAYS ready for it to be fall!

Books

A few new releases this month!

The Tudor Times has created two new “Book of Days” that will be released this month. I have their Tudor Book of Days that was released a few years ago and it’s lovely so I expect these will be wonderful as well.

The first is Queen Elizabeth I Book of Days which will be released, appropriately, on Elizabeth’s birthday – September 7!

And the second is Mary Queen of Scots Book of Days which also has an appropriate release date – September 9, the anniversary of Mary’s coronation as Queen of Scotland.

And also this month, Sarah Gristwood’s latest work, The Tudors in Love: The Courtly Code Behind the Last Medieval Dynasty will be released on September 23 in the UK (no US release info yet, but I’ll keep an eye out!).

Events

The Society of Antiquaries have a couple of upcoming online lectures in conjunction with their virtual exhibit Henry VIII: Defender of the Faith?. And you can see past lectures on their YouTube Channel! The lectures are free, but you must register in advance. More information on each talk at the links:

First up – The Boleyns: Behind the Scenes of A Scandalous Family by Dr. Lauren Mackay and Dr. Estelle Paranque will be on September 3 at 1:00 p.m. (13.00) UK time.

And a few weeks later – Queenship in Early Modern England? will be presented by Professor Susan Doran on September 14, also at 1:00 p.m. (13.00) UK time.

Entertainment

The Royal Shakespeare Company‘s production of the theatrical adaptation of The Mirror and the Light – the third book of Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall Trilogy – will open at the Gielgud Theatre in London on September 23 and will run through November 28.

Continuing Exhibitions

This one closes on September 5 so time is running out!

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.

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.

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.

Upcoming Books, Exhibitions, and Events for August 2021

Wow, it’s already August! I know for some people this is the time to enjoy peak summer, but I’ve lived in Texas my whole life and here August is usually just something to be endured (with the only relief coming from the occasional hurricane). But autumn is on the horizon!

Books

There are a couple of new releases this month, starting off with The Boleyns of Hever Castle by Owen Emmerson and Claire Ridgway, which is out today in both the UK and US. Hever is definitely one of those high on my ‘revisit list’ for some future return to the UK. I visited on my first trip in 1998 and haven’t been back there on any subsequent visit so I’m overdue to go back!

And the latest work by Amy Licence Woodsmoke and Sage: The Five Senses 1485-1603: How the Tudors Experienced the World will be out near the end of the month in the UK and later in the year in the US under the title Living Like a Tudor: Woodsmoke and Sage: A Sensory Journey Through Tudor England. UK or US edition – it’s a very evocative title!

Events

The Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre and Country Park will once again be marking the anniversary of the battle that launched the Tudor Dynasty with a week of activities and events – both in person and online this year! The Bosworth Medieval Medley will run from August 16 to 22 and includes themed walks, online presentations, and more! Please see the link for schedules, ticket information, and COVID safety measures.

Continuing Exhibitions

No new exhibitions this month, but the ones I’ve mentioned in the last few months are continuing on!

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.

Upcoming Books, Exhibitions, and Events for July 2021

Welcome to the second half of the year! Just one book update this month, but the rest of the summer and the fall look to have some exciting releases.

Books

The Brandon Men: In the Shadow of Kings by Sarah Bryson was released last month in the UK and is due out in the US on July 15.

Continuing Exhibitions

No new exhibitions this month, but the ones I mentioned last month are still going on for a while and there are a few new things on the horizon as things start to open up!

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.

Upcoming Books, Exhibitions, and Events for June 2021

Books

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!

Continuing Exhibitions

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.

Upcoming Books and Exhibitions for May 2021

How are we already 1/3 of the way into 2021? Although my notion of time has really been messed up since March 2020 anyway…

Books
Nathen Amin’s Henry VII and the Tudor Pretenders: Simnel, Warbeck, and Warwick that was released last month in the UK is due out in the US on May 15:

And in new Tudor history books out this month, Franny Moyle’s The King’s Painter: The Life and Times of Hans Holbein will be out at the end of the month in the UK and in the fall in the US. I’m always happy to see more work on Holbein the man, in addition to Holbein the artist.

Exhibitions

So great to see that a lot of exhibitions are finally opening up! Some of these have been on my radar for over a year and a half now. And I missed this first one until shortly after I posted last month’s round-up:

The Philip Mould Gallery in London has an exhibition of Elizabethan & Jacobean portraiture called Love’s Labour’s Found that opened on April 21 and will run through May 28.

I think this exhibit was open for a short while before the pandemic set in, but regardless, now it’s back on starting May 17! The Royal Museums Greenwich united the three versions of the Armada Portrait for the first time for the Faces of a Queen exhibition.

And the Tudors to Windsors: British Royal Portraits exhibition that has been around the world (including here in Texas!) will be opening 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 now they are finally due to start on May 20.

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.

Upcoming books for April 2021

Events and exhibitions seem to still be on hold for a little while although it looks like some will be resuming soon. But the publishing schedules seems to finally be getting back to normal, so it’s time for a new book round-up!

First up is Sarah-Beth Watkins Elizabeth I’s Last Favorite: Robert Devereux, 2nd Earl of Essex which was just released in the UK and will be out in the US in a few days. I’m trying to remember of any recent books on Essex himself and not just part of an examination of the reign of Elizabeth I, so this is good to see!

Next is King & Collector: Henry VIII and the Art of Kingship by Linda Collins and Siobhan Clarke which will be out in April in the UK and in November in the US (although it appears the Kindle version will be released in April in the US as well – the link below is for the hardcover pre-order). This looks to be an interesting exploration of Henry VIII as a patron of the arts, especially for art on his favorite subject – himself! 😀

I’ve been looking forward to Nathen Amin’s latest book, Henry VII and the Tudor Pretenders: Simnel, Warbeck, and Warwick for a while so I’m glad to see it finally coming out in April in the UK and in May in the US. I think this was one of several books of people I follow on Twitter that got hit by COVID delays.

This next book in the Chronos Crime Chronicles series is out at the end of the month and is titled Chronos Crime Chronicles – Jane Parker: The Downfall of Two Tudor Queens? by Charlie Fenton.

Finally, The York Princesses: The daughters of Edward IV and Elizabeth Woodville by Sarah J. Hodder is out at the end of the month in the UK and the US. I think the other princesses tend to get overshadowed by Elizabeth of York, so it’s nice to see an exploration of her sisters’ lives.

Upcoming book releases for the rest of 2020

My schedule for making these posts is just totally messed up these days, so I’m going to try to do a round-up for a few things I’ve missed and some books I’m anticipating will be released from now through the end of the year. Anything new I come across that comes out in 2020 I’ll put in a post at the end of December or early January.

Books

In recent new releases, Lauren McKay’s Wolf Hall Companion is now out in both the UK and the US.

And Medical Downfall of the Tudors: Sex, Reproduction & Succession by Sylvia Barbara Soberton came out in late October, focussing on what the archives reveal about the medical history of the Tudors.

And coming later this year…

Chronos Crime Chronicles – The Death of Amy Robsart: An Elizabethan Mystery by Sarah-Beth Watkins, first in a new true crime series from Chronos Books, is due out on December 11 in the UK and on January 1 in the US.

Events

I’m not anticipating any more events and exhibitions to be opening in person for the remainder of 2020. There have been a lot of virtual events that I probably should have tried to track and post over recent months but I know it would have been as hopeless as trying to track all of the Tudor-related fiction books that come out!

As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

Upcoming Books for September 2020

Just a book round-up this month!

I missed a couple of things that did manage to come out in the past couple of months. The publication schedules do seem to still be in flux though so I can’t promise that some of these release dates are 100% accurate!

Previously Released

First up, the third book in Elisabeth Wheeler’s Catherine Howard trilogy, The Queen Shall Fall is now available and can be ordered through her website.

Next up, 1520: The Field of the Cloth of Gold by Amy Licence was released in the UK back in July and will be out September 1 in the US:

New This Month

Lauren Mackay’s Wolf Hall Companion will be out on September 3 in the UK and in October in the US:

Sean Cunningham has written the entry for Henry VII for the Penguin Monarchs series and it *might* be out in the US on September 1 and in June 2021 in the UK. I’m going to go ahead and list it now just in case it does actually release in the US this week. (The Penguin Monarchs edition is the new release, but the paperback version listed with it is actually the bio of Henry VII that Sean Cunningham wrote for the Routledge Historical Biographies series that was published several years ago).

That’s it for this month! I hope you all are doing well. We’re still in “stay at home as much as possible” mode here in central Texas pretty much through the end of the year, so I’m still primarily working from home and only going out for groceries. It’s a little monotonous, but I do like staying out of the Texas summer heat as much as possible! 🙂

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!
