Join us as we welcome the Royal Armouries back to The Queen's Gallery for this exciting, live demonstration of Tudor combat.

Discover how 16th century armour was worn as experts from the Royal Armouries prepare to demonstrate foot combat and explain how the garments and armour were designed to protect their wearer. Watch as the team brings authentic Tudor combat techniques to life during a fast-paced, live demonstration. After the demonstration, there will be time for guests to handle objects, ask questions and meet the team from the Royal Armouries before you enjoy a glass of wine or soft drink as you explore the rest of the exhibition, Holbein at the Tudor Court.
