Selly Manor Lates: Tudor Cinema Club

Maple Road, Bournville, Birmingham, West Midlands, B30 2AE
Selly Manor Lates: Tudor Cinema Club


Even if you've never read a Shakespeare play, you might have some idea about Shakespeare's life and how it felt to live in Tudor and Stuart England from historical novels, films and TV shows. But how accurately do writers and film-makers tell stories about the past? Were Elizabethan audiences actually drunk and rowdy? Were ruffs really that big, and does it even matter?

Join Richard O'Brien, a Teaching Fellow at The Shakespeare Institute and Birmingham's Poet Laureate, for an interactive evening of readings, film clips and discussion in the beautiful Tudor surroundings of Selly Manor. You will have the chance to watch and listen to examples of historical fiction that offer different perspectives on Tudor England and to be part of a lively discussion on how these books and programmes bring the past into the present. There will also be the opportunity to reflect on the evening in our medieval hall with some tea and cake. No academic knowledge is required, but questions and enthusiasm are encouraged!
