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.
