I hosted a couple of History Showoff gigs at Fulham Palace last week. This was a really lovely event in an historic palace which reminded me of the architecture of Eton, where I grew up.
We had a couple of speakers per show, talking about Tudor superstitions, a Victorian forgery of a Tudor merchant’s diary and an Anne Boleyn tattoo, amongst other things. And then we retired to the bar to get hammered on mead. It was fab.
Thanks to Peter Hose for the photo and Steve Cross for the gig.
