Book Now Book Now Queen Elizabeth I portrayed by Rachel Duffield

Queen Elizabeth 1st:

A one-hour talk for

clubs & societies

 

 

I begin the talk dressed in Tudor underwear.

 

As the talk progresses I get dressed, ending up wearing a demonstration Tudor costume based on Hilliard's Pelican Portrait of Elizabeth (1574).

 

As I dress, I talk about each item of clothing or jewellery, bringing in relevant information about its historical and social context.

 

Although the tone is light hearted, I research rigorously and all information given is correct to the best of my knowledge.

 

During the proceedings, I will need a helping hand from an audience member, to lace up my bodice.

 

The talk lasts around 50-60 minutes, depending on how many questions I get.

 

Please note:

This talk does not include singing.
