Reform, Rebellion, Restoration: St Mary’s, Beverley & The Tudors


As we have taken down the exhibition in St Mary’s (due to lockdown restrictions) a digital version is available. The digital counterpart will include images of the portraits in the exhibition and the full text written by Dr Jennie England, St Mary’s Heritage Learning Officer.

Below is one of the most iconic portraits highlighted in the exhibition. Click on the image to visit the online exhibition:

On the road

After the exhibition finishes in church, it will be loaned to schools and community venues in the area for free. It is hoped that this will inspire pupils and teachers alike as they explore the wonderful history and art contained in these portraits. Dr England will also be animating the history through free illustrated talks for schools via video conferencing. Any schools or community venues interested in borrowing the exhibition and/or receiving a talk from Dr England are invited to email St Mary’s education team:
