What's on in January

Dr (Peg) M A Katritzy is a Senior Research Fellow at The Open University (Barbara Wilkes Research Fellow in Theatre Studies). This month's talk focuses on The Oxburgh Hangings - a collection of needlework fragments made between 1570 and about 1585. They are the work of Mary Queen of Scots and Elizabeth (Bess) Talbot, Countess of Shrewsbury. Bess’s husband George Talbot, Earl of Shrewsbury was responsible for Mary during her imprisonment in England.
