Wearing accurate historical costume we interpret the Tudor & early Stuart periods using primary source research to bring both court and domestic aspects to life by recreating many topics of the period - whether for schools, museum services or corporate entertainment clients.
We pride ourselves on adaptability (!) so for museums and historic venues we are happy to give either a fixed schedule event at 30 minute or one hour intervals or to offer a free flow activity which takes place as and when there is a suitable audience.
In school or museums' education interpretation days are designed to augment the Curriculum
Activities for Key stage 2 include: Tudor Stillroom (above) covering medicine and health; Tudor Merchants covering merchants, traders, settlers and trade with America; Tudor Court covering the reigns of Henry VIII and Elizabeth 1 and activities at court; Tudor music and dance covering the differences between court life and country life.
Activities for Key stage 3: The Queens court - Elizabethan courtiers
We are happy to work with you to develop and construct further curriculum based 'packages'.
Music and dance:
We can perform and teach a range of late Medieval Tudor & early Stuart dances: Here (right) we appear as Henrician dancers in Eltham Palace Great Hall. We can cover some the years from around 1450 to 1650.
The Tudor/Stuart Courts:
We specialise in court re-creation and have a range of court costumes covering the Henrician, Elizabethan and Stuart periods. We have worked in a number of former palaces from the Tudor/Stuart periods including Hampton Court, Eltham Palace and Greenwich Palace. We have also taken part in film and television work, supplying our own gentry and/or court costume and artefacts.
