Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge
Sunday 1st November 2015 1pm–4pm Free
Five Africans visited London in the 1550s, brought back along with an elephant’s head, ivory, pepper and gold: parish registers show a scattering of black Londoners setting up home in the Elizabethan period. By 1601 royal proclamations suggest that there was a sizable black community. Imagine yourself back in time by trying on our Tudor costumes and taking photographs or sketching friends and family to show the diversity of the Tudor community.
