Summary

Summary

While continuing the medieval tradition of tournament and pageantry, the Tudors increasingly read and attended the theatre, danced and took a keen interest in music. This text explores the pastimes of Tudor men and women, from all levels of society, both at home and at large. Both before and after the great religious upheaval of the Reformation, the festivals of the Church provided the perfect excuse for revelry; and weddings and christenings were then, as now, great social occasions.
