Inspired by the exhibition Six Lives: The Stories of Henry VIII’s Queens, this panel discussion will explore different perspectives on the experience of adapting the biographies of the queens for storytelling in musicals, operas and plays, novels, film and television.


Featuring varied creative voices who have all taken inspiration from the queen’s lives for storytelling this event will be chaired by historian Tracy Borman; with Gabriella Slade the visionary costume designer behind acclaimed West End show, SIX the Musical, actor Charlotte Hope, who played Katherine of Aragon in 2019 TV series The Spanish Princess, and novelist Elizabeth Freemantle whose book Queen’s Gambit about the life of Katherine Parr has been turned into a new film, Firebrand, starring Jude Law and Alicia Vikander.
