Exploring the subject behind her latest novel, Sarah Gristwood traces the dramatic stories of the famous ‘Four Marys’ who grew up with Mary Queen of Scots – and asks, what it is like to live in the shadow of another woman’s power?

 

Explore what's on

A Live Interpreter dressed as a Tudor Yeoman of the Guard, wearing a red livery coat with HR and Tudor Rose, and holding a halberd.

The shadow of Henry VIII is gone. Music, dance and fun fill the air. Have you got what it takes to make friends with the old king’s children? And is romance at last in the air for ex-Queen Katherine Parr?
