As most of you probably know, I divide my time between running the Anne Boleyn Files and Tudor Society, plus researching and writing, family life, watching Game of Thrones… busy, busy! And one of my true joys in life is the Tudor Society because it’s become a real community of Tudor history lovers and Tudor history experts.
Lots of people join the Tudor Society because of the monthly magazine which historian Gareth Russell edits (cheers Gareth!) and which is always jam-packed with Tudor articles, or our expert talks (thank you, lovely historians!)but if I had to choose one favourite thing about being involved in the Tudor Society I’d have to choose the live chats. Although I am neck-deep in Tudor history every day (lucky me, I know!), I don’t get much chance to “talk Tudor”. The words “I hate history” came out of my seventeen-year-old daughter’s mouth just last week (I have failed, I know…) and family and friends’ eyes glaze over when I start talking about it (“Claire’s off again!”), so the chat sessions we have twice a month mean a lot to me. Whether it’s grilling a historian on their expert talk, debating a topic informally, or chatting at our annual Christmas party chat session, I can hand-on-heart say that I love every minute of it. Talking Tudor for an hour twice a month with people as interested as I am in the topic helps to keep me sane, I’m sure, and it’s lovely to get to know members.
Anyway, I digress (as per usual!)…
If you are interested in becoming part of a community of Tudor history lovers, learning from historians and experts, reading a Tudor-focused magazine, enjoying weekly quizzes and video talks, talking Tudor… then please do consider becoming a member. We have special time-sensitive offers if you sign up in the next three days, before the end of 30th November.
Go to www.tudorsociety.com/nov-offer/ to see a video of yours truly explaining it all (and yes, that is a Ravenclaw t-shirt I’m wearing, but we do welcome members of all Hogwarts houses = sorry, I digress again!).
