Among The Wolves of Court

Hever Festival Theatre

Sun 18th Oct

8.00 pm

Anne Boleyn’s story is famous, but that of her father, Thomas Boleyn, is less known.

Thomas is usually portrayed as a grasping courtier who sacrificed his daughters to the royal bedchamber but there is far more to his story. For over three decades Thomas enjoyed a successful career as one of the Tudor period’s most highly skilled ambassadors, served as one of Cardinal Wolsey’s right-hand men and was respected throughout the courts of Europe. A man of intellect and spirituality, he was also a patron of some of the greatest minds of the age, including the great scholar Desiderius Erasmus.

Dr Lauren Mackay will spend an evening delving into Thomas Boleyn’s life and career, moving beyond the myths and stereotypes to establish his place in Tudor history. Dr Lauren Mackay is an historian and author specializing in Early Modern diplomacy, and whose focus of study goes beyond familiar historical figures to the customs and diplomacy of the 16th Century.
