A NEW exhibition at The Potteries Museum will show what the Tudors did for Britain.
The event displays many items with links to the Tudor period.
It on this Saturday, the 28th of March from 10pm until 4.
From the Press Release:
Meet Henry and his second wife Anne Boleyn, before she lost her head! Listen to
the court gossip and try not to upset the king or he will lock you away in the
tower. Join in the dancing with the king and queen as three costumed musicians
play on authentic instruments. Sing along with the jolly ballads from the time.
The court of Henry VIII was renowned for its banquets and extravagant food,
ever wonder why the king became so large! A leading food historian has
recreated a sample of these dishes for you to see. These include a painted
gingerbread chequered board and a gold leaf marchpane heraldic device. If
you’re interested you can also take recipes home and experiment on the family.
Ever wondered what it would be like to be a falconer in Tudor times? Then visit
the ‘Hawk Mews’ where you can see birds of prey, including a hunting hawk,
peregrine falcon and kestrel. The mews is lavishly decorated with period
furniture, perches and equipment and there will be a series of talks and
storytelling during the day.
The Tudor Times Event runs from 10am-4pm with free admission at The Potteries
Museum & Art Gallery, in Bethesda Street, Stoke-on-Trent, ST1 3DW
