The North of England in the Tudor Era - Taster Session

Ref: C3676685

The Tudor era nationally is well documented. But what was happening in the north at the time and how did that differ from the situation in other parts of the country? Were the people of the north open to change and if not, how did they cope with it? Come along and find out in a relaxed atmosphere. This taster session will lead to a 6 week course on this subject starting in October in Northallerton.
