I have been supporting history authors by attending their virtual online talks, some free, some a small fee but well worth it to help them.
Simon Thurley talks
You can also replay them. I have joined Histlit which you get lots of talks and articles by many authors.
Sarah Morris has a number of good stuff at the moment and I was at her Tudor Summit recently.
Glen Richardson has a new book on Wolsey.
Hever are launching a site to have an interaction soon to go on virtual visits and help out that way.
Hampton Court do a virtual walk every day.
You can also join the Tudor Society.
National Trust have many virtual resources for members. Parks and gardens are open but please book.
Gwydir Castle is open in Spring 2021 but you can see this small independent castle online. They have nice gifts.
Most authors have their books on sale.
You can also shop locally but please don’t use big supermarkets but local independent shops.
Really cool video. I enjoyed seeing such great ideas for gifts. Thanks for the giveaway, and a chance to win. Michelle t
