Tudor Talk at Woodhorn

Woodhorn Museum Ashington

Tudor Costume Design- Bring History to Life.

Elizabeth I
As my Costume Talk/Lecture at Woodhorn on Mothering Sunday 10th March 2013 proved so popular I was asked to present it again in June 2013. So this presentation in October 2013 is the second return of my very popular talk  – it is scheduled as part of history week at the Woodhorn Museum in Ashington.

It includes information about the design/construction and inspiration for my 16th Century inspired historical gowns, as well as a brief and sometimes humorous history of the people who wore them.

Integral to the event is a display of my four costumes on mannequins with headdresses, fans, underwear and jewellery – costumes for  Elizabeth I, Mary Queen of Scots and Anne Boleyn are included. There is also a personal appearance by King Henry VIII in full regalia. My talk is to be presented twice on Sunday 27th October at 11.30 am and 2 pm. Ticket price: £4 for my talk. Booking is advised.

Tickets available from Woodhorn Museum who is hosting the event. For further information about my talk  please visit the Woodhorn website –  http://www.experiencewoodhorn.com/mothers-day-costume-talk/. 

My talk has also been mentioned in the local newspaper ‘The Evening Chronicle ‘ please find link below


Book early as my talk proved so popular last time staff at the Woodhorn had to turn people away!

    I would like to know if you could do a gown of Anne Boleyn for me to wear at renfair? I would love to have the pembroke of Marquis dress or her yellow dress, from the Tudors where she is spinning around out side.

      Thank you for your email.

      I am really pleased you are interested in an Anne Boleyn Gown.

      I am sorry but at the moment I am very busy with Fashion Shows and Costume lectures so am not accepting commissions for costumes.

      If the situation changes I will be in touch with you straight away.

      Thank you for your for your interest
