Monarchs, Martyrs and Ministers: the History behind Wolf Hall

Historian Dr Catherine Fletcher, expert advisor to the BBC TV production of Wolf Hall, will be coming to Sheffield Cathedral to give us a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the making of this incredible series.

We will look at the history behind the dramatization of the Hilary Mantel novels and the challenges of bringing the Tudors to the TV screen.

What shape was a Tudor coffin?
What sort of a hat would Cardinal Wolsey have worn?
Would the Tudors’ teeth have been rotten – or pearly white? 

With exclusive insights and clips from the series, join us over a glass of Tudor Mead or Elderflower cordial for what is sure to be a fascinating and popular event – unmissable for any history addict!
