15.06.17 - Wolf Hall at Gainsborough Old Hall

Some of he costumes from the award winning BBC production "Wolf Hall" are currently on show at Gainsborough Old Hall, and yesterday I had the chance to photograph them. Gainsborough Old Hall has featured in the Dailies before, I helped make a short film there a few years ago. It is a medieval manor house with a fascinating history. It was fought over during the Wars of the Roses, and Henry VIII stayed thee with his young wife Catherine Howard. John Wesley preached there, and the Pilgrim Fathers hid there before their escape to the New World. Hillary Mantel's book "Wolf Hall" tells the story of intrigue and danger in the court of Henry VIII from a very different perspective to the norm. Both it and the TV series won countless awards. The costumes are magnificent too
