Join Fiona Slattery Clark, Curator of Decorative Art, for a talk about the Walker Art Gallery’s major exhibition, The Tudors: Passion, Power and Politics. 

Reigning from 1485 to 1603, the Tudors presided over a period of great social and political change. For 500 years their lives have captured the public’s imagination. 

Dress was the main way that the Tudors projected their status. This talk will take a closer look at the luxurious clothes and jewels favoured by Henry VIII’s wives and other famous women of the period.
