Please join us for a special opportunity to explore the exhibition after hours, with live entertainment and a cash bar. The event is part of the larger Burlington House Summer Lates programme

The exhibition is located in the Society of Antiquaries' historic 19th-century apartments at Burlington House, and the venue itself is worth visiting.

Visitors will have the opportunity to explore the temporary exhibition, Blood Royal: Picturing the Tudor Monarchy, join a felt-making workshop, tours of our historic Library, enjoy live medieval and Tudor music and enjoy drinks from a cash bar.

Glam Hatters Workshop (18.30 and 19.30)

We are delighted to be offering two half-hour felt-making fascinator workshops from Glam Hatters' Janie Lawson. The workshops are inspired by the hats worn by the Tudor monarchs in our portraits. Janie, a professional craftswoman, will demonstrate and help participants to make felt-based hair accessories that they will be able to take away and wear.

Workshops are free, but space is limited. Use the button below to book in advance to avoid disappointment.

These workshops are sponsored by the Worshipful Company of Feltmakers of London.
