CHANGING CLOTHES: FASHION, POWER, AND CONTROL IN TUDOR ENGLAND

Saturday 19 October: 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Faculty of History, Room 6, West Road, CB3 9EF

Every morning, we get up and we get dressed. We might put on work clothes or our school uniform. Some of us think a lot about what we wear and some of us do not. However, in the past, things were not so simple. Men and women had many rules which controlled what they could and could not wear. If you broke these rules, you could be punished.
In this History for Schools workshop, we will explore what people in the Tudor period wore. We will look at what they could and could not wear and how this changed over time. We will see how clothing mattered as much for boys as it did for girls and how contact with the New World prompted new fashions at court and in the military.

This event is for children ages 7-11, children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
