    BOLEYN: The Musical & An Audience with Jessy Tomsko

    BOLEYN: The Musical & An Audience with Jessy Tomsko

    This extra special episode of The Tudor History & Travel Show takes us into the world of musical theatre! I'm joined by the supremely talented Jessy Tomsko as she tells us about her new musical 'Boleyn'. Combining Jessy's love of history and music, 'Boleyn' tells Anne Boleyn's story, with Anne as the central protagonist.  Jessy shares her spooky inspiration for conceiving the idea for 'Boleyn' and the creative process behind bringing it into being. She also performs three songs in this exclusive performance for The Tudor History & Travel Show listeners. I was hugely privileged to get an early insight into the wonderful music and lyrics coming our way that so perfectly captures Anne's spirit. I'm delighted I can share it with you in this episode, which is one of my personal favourites to date.

    Temple Newsam: A Scottish Enclave in Henry VIII's Yorkshire

    Temple Newsam: A Scottish Enclave in Henry VIII's Yorkshire

    In this episode, I take my first trip to Temple Newsam, a beautiful Tudor house set in acres of stunning parkland. I'm joined by two guides, Robert Lee and Rebecca Allott, who share their wealth of knowledge on the fantastic history that surrounds this spectacular Tudor place. A hunting park in Tudor times, the vast amount of land surrounding the house gives Temple Newsam a rural feel, despite its location near to the city of Leeds. Built by Thomas, Lord Darcy between 1500 and 1520, join me as I explore this hidden Tudor gem, discovering just what it was like back in Tudor times.

    The Charterhouse: Piety, Power and Treason in the City

    The Charterhouse: Piety, Power and Treason in the City

    In this episode, we visit one of my favourite Tudor places in London: the Charterhouse. Once a prestigious religious institution, its history embraces piety, bloodshed, triumph and treason as men of God, and men of power came and went, shaping not only its history but the very fabric of the building. The Charterhouse is off the Tudor trail, tucked away in a quiet garden square, with many people unaware of its existence. For an on-location tour, join me and our Charterhouse guide, James, as we explore this wonderful historic building with some of its original medieval and Tudor structures still intact. 


    To read my accompanying blog to this podcast, and see some images of the Charterhouse, click here.

In love with this podcast 🥰🏰

SO happy I had found this podcast to fulfill all my castle fantasy! Visited Windsor Castle n Hampton Palace in the past and can’t wait to be back to UK in the near future to explore more!

kakax1970 ,

Great Tudor podcast!

I love this podcast. She is so knowledgeable, delivers it in a very easy to understand manner. Some podcasters talk too quickly and aren’t as organized with their subjects. She really brings the Tudor world to life! When this pandemic is over, she will be the one I contact to help me with my trip!
