Anne to Henry in the Tower scene of Anne of The Thousand Days

Elizabeth is yours. Watch her as she grows; she’s yours. She’s a Tudor! Get yourself a son off of that sweet, pale girl if you can – and hope that he will live! But Elizabeth shall reign after you! Yes, Elizabeth – child of Anne the Whore and Henry the Blood-Stained Lecher – shall be Queen! And remember this: Elizabeth shall be a greater queen than any king of yours! She shall rule a greater England than you could ever have built! Yes – MY Elizabeth SHALL BE QUEEN! And my blood will have been well spent!

Exhibitions of 2013

Once again Christmas and New Year have come and gone for another year but don’t slip into that same routine that many people slip into every year make this year different/special to any other year that you have had. For many people 2012 has been a really hard year. I can definitely say that 2012 has been the hardest year I have ever had to deal with. But I guess once you get to 18 you start to understood that becoming an adult is everything that you thought it would be and one bit of advise I would get to the generation younger then me is that don’t be in such a hurry to grow up. Enjoy being a child and don’t wish away your childhood or even school because before you know it that will all be over and you probably won’t believe me but you will miss it and wish that you could go back.

Right, now I’ve had a bit of a rabbit on about thing that have no relevance  to my blog it’s now time to get on with some History which is what this blog is all about!

So today I have decided to talk about some of the exhibition that are taking place in 2013 in the UK including ones that are ending this year. So it will be your last chance to get to see some of the exhibition, so get out their and have a look and really embrace in the History of our beautiful country.

So, I’m only going to list some exhibitions on this blog post but if none of them are for you there are plenty of others out there that many interest you.

First up is:

A living Tudor world – This will be taking place at Hampton Court Palace from the 28/10/2012 up until 31/03/2013. So these are the last few months for you go and see this before it ends. So, I highly suggest that if you love the Tudors or you have a passion to learn more about them then going and see this exhibition before it’s to late. But if you do decide to go don’t forget to prepare yourself for meeting the King otherwise you might just find yourself locked in the Tower of London or even your head meeting the block. Your probably wanting to know how much this event is going to cost well it’s from £14.40.

Charles I’s Execution – This exhibition will take place at the Banqueting House from the 30/01/2013 up until 31/12/2013. So, this exhibition will be on for a quite awhile. So, this is a brand new display at the Banqueting House and is the idea exhibition to go to if you are a lover of Charles I or you just love History in general. The exhibition will be installed in time for the anniversary of Charles’ execution. So while not get along to it and just have a great day out experiencing the beautiful History of our country. Well, your probably wondering how much this exhibition is going to cost well its just from £5.00. So who could miss out on such a bargain!
