Gloriana Medival Troupe Performing at the Albrighton Trust



Gloriana Living History was founded in Wolverhampton in 1978 by a group of enthusiasts interested in early music and dance from the Medieval and Tudor period; over the years the group has performed at Hever Castle, the once-residence of Anne Boleyn, Hatfield House, acquired by Henry VIII and Coughton Court, a Tudor residence connected to the Gunpowder Plot, to name but a few.

They have also danced at the British Museum as well as numerous Medieval Banquets, Charity events and taken part in educational visits to schools and colleges.

The Group’s television appearances include the BBC's Tudor Monastery Farm with historian Ruth Goodman; Come Dine With Me, and Fred Dibner's Historic Houses.

Not all members dance, some play early instruments such as, the hurdy- gurdy and crumhorn, whilst other members enjoy researching into and giving talks on Tudor medicine, early dance and dress.
