Tracy Borman on “The Private Lives of the Tudors” 

Dr Tracy Borman is joint Chief Curator of Historic Royal Palaces and Chief Executive of the Heritage Education Trust. She studied and taught History at the University of Hull and was awarded a PhD in 1997. She is the author of a number of highly acclaimed books.

Tracy is also a regular broadcaster and public speaker across the UK and abroad.

The Gringley History Club were keen to engage a high profile speaker to advance further the progress made since we launched in 2010. Tracy was originally from Lincolnshire, and came highly recommended by a couple of our members who had heard her speak before.

We were pleased to pack the Parish Church with about 90 guests on Saturday 25th March 2017 to hear her talk on “The Private Lives of the Tudors”. She spoke from the pulpit with great clarity and illustrated with some amusing pictures. Afterwards, Tracy answered several questions and signed books, while the audience indulged in tea or coffee or a glass of prosecco.

The Club felt the evening was a great success and we shall attempt to secure her services again for her next book. 

There are some further photographs of the event in the SCRAPBOOK section of this website.
