      EVENT DETAILS
      Black Tudors: Three Untold Stories

      VENUE CHANGE - This event is now taking place at Conway Hall PART OF OUR BLACK HISTORY MONTH SERIES Dr Kaufmann tells the intriguing tales of three Africans living in Tudor England – Jacques Francis, a diver employed by Henry VIII to recover guns from the wreck of the Mary Rose; Mary Fillis, a Moroccan woman baptized in Elizabethan London; and Edward Swarthye, a porter who whipped a fellow servant at their master's Gloucestershire manor house. Their stories illuminate key issues: – how did they come to England? What were their lives like? How were they treated by the church and the law? Most importantly: were they free? A ticket does not guarantee entry. As this is a free event, we over-issue tickets to avoid empty seats. All ticket holders must be seated by 5:50pm, after which tickets will be reallocated to people queuing for returns.  For school bookings, please contact us at enquiries@gresham.ac.uk
