Houses of Power

February 1, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

We will be starting the beginning of February with another lecture at the Europe House in London; Dr Simon Thurley will holding a talk on ‘Houses of Power.’

Based on Dr Thurley’s recent book by the same name, Houses of Power will be a lecture that explores the homes of the Tudor Monarchs; why these huge interiors were created, and how they became central to the private politics of court.

Recently reviewed by Professor John Guy as ‘a triumph; a masterly collective biography of these buildings, replete with insights into their owners’ private lives and into politics, diplomacy and court etiquette.’ This lecture is sure to be a favorite among fans of grand interiors, and Tudors alike.

Starts: 18:00 – Glass of wine on arrival
Lecture: 18.30 – 19:30
All Lectures are free to attend but spaces are limited.
RSVP essential: comm-lon-rsvp@ec.europa.eu

A former chief executive of English Heritage, and a director of the Museum of London; Dr Thurley has had a full career in broadcasting, and publishing. Much of his work can be found here.
