This is an online event hosted on Zoom. Bookers are sent a link in advance giving access.

Join Phillipa Vincent-Connolly as she talks to Tracy Borman, about her new book Disability and the Tudors, and explores the treatment of disabled and infirm people during the Tudor era. She guides us through the social, religious, cultural and ruling classes’ response to disability as it was perceived during the sixteenth century.

Phillipa Vincent-Connolly is a historian and writer who has written both historical fiction and non-fiction and is currently working towards a PhD in History, specialising in disability during theTudor era . Among her many interests is a deep and abiding love for all things historical: archives, artefacts, architecture, corsetry, fashion, and royalty. Phillipa is also a keen activist, wanting untold disabled voices of the past to be heard, by bringing them into the mainstream. Being disabled with cerebral palsy, Phillipa has an interest in disability equality.

Tracy Borman is an author, Tudor historian, broadcaster and joint Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces. Tracy has written a number of historical biographies, including: Henry VIII and the Men who Made Him: The Secret History Behind the Tudor Throne; Elizabeth’s Women: the Hidden Story of the Virgin Queen; and Thomas Cromwell: The Untold Story of Henry VIII’s Most Faithful Servant.
