Kenilworth Castle and Elizabeth I’s 1575 visit

I am very excited about going back to Kenilworth Castle in September on the Discover the Tudors Tour as it's been nearly 8 years since I was last there, and it's a place that is dear to me. I studied at Warwick University, just a few miles from the castle, so I have been many times and it never fails to have an effect on me.

In this talk, I look at the Dudley family's links to Kenilworth Castle and the preparations for Elizabeth I's 19-day visit there in 1575. I hope you enjoy it.

Dr Elizabeth Goldring, one of the tour speakers, was involved in Lucy Worsley's Fireworks for a Tudor Queen, a programme which airs tonight at 9pm on BBC4 in the UK. The programme attempts to re-create the fireworks display that Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, organised for Queen Elizabeth I at Kenilworth Castle in 1575.

    Great programme, lots of very loud bangs, dynamic sparks and wow displays, a lot of hard work to make and the display which cost a couple of millions in modern money. The costumes and final display and party went with an impressive bang.
