The plot

Part of the exhibition in the retrochoir: portrait displayed between two old screen panels

The Tudor period is full to bursting with drama, intrigue and plot twists. We chronicle these tempestuous times – for Beverley and the nation – through six short stories, told in words and images from different corners of St Mary’s:

  • The Year 1520

  • The 1530s: divorce, reform, martyrs

  • Rebellion

  • Painting the royal court

  • Religious reform

  • Queen Elizabeth I & Beverley’s independence
