Henry Howard Earl of Surrey (1516–47) – T320 (Face to Face & Online)
20 March 2024 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm GMT
Susan Morris & Alfred Bradley
Aged only 30, in 1547 the English nobleman, politician and poet Henry Howard Earl of Surrey was executed by order of Henry VIII. It is said that ‘a dangerously erratic young noble may have been neutralised, but an outstanding creative literary mind was also destroyed’.
This talk, brought to life with readings, will explore Surrey’s life at the centre of the Tudor court. It will reveal how, but for Surrey showing the way, there would have been no Shakespeare sonnets. Susan and Alfred, both historians, will share an enjoyable look back at lesser-known gentry.
This talk is available face to face at the Institute or online via zoom so make sure you select the correct ticket type.
Booking in advance is recommended.
