SIX the Musical House of Holbein Art Experience
National Portrait Gallery
Her story Consultant
We were commissioned by Historemix Ltd to create an exciting new history and art three part experience for the smash hit musical SIX. We called it the House of Holbein Art Tour and hosted it at the National Portrait Gallery.
DIVORCED. BEHEADED. LIVE. IN CONCERT!
From Tudor Queens to Pop Princesses, the six wives of Henry VIII take to the mic to tell their tales, remixing five hundred years of historical heartbreak into a 75 minute celebration of 21st century girl power. These Queens may have green sleeves but their lipstick is rebellious red.
House of Holbein Art Tour
Join us for a fantastic SIX themed art tour at London’s National Portrait Gallery. Bursting at the corset, these portraits have riffs to ruffle your ruffs and shimmies to shake up your chemise and a whole lot of HER-story! Explore the Queens through the eyes of artists including the studio of Hans Holbein and see how these Queens dressed to impress. Then indulge your senses with a Queen’s cocktail before seeing the Queens live on stage at the Arts Theatre.
Take a look at our House of Holbein Art Tour at the National Portrait in this vlog – featuring some VIP visitors…the Queens!
Watch the Queens form a flash mob at the Tower of London

Caroline Marcus Associates ran a series of very successful bespoke pre show events centred around the Holbein paintings at the National Portrait Gallery in connection with our popular musical SIX which was running at the Arts Theatre near Leicester Square. Not only does Caroline have a passion as an educator but she loves the Arts. She has a tremendously accomplished set of associates with whom she works very closely in order to deliver the very best possible customer experience. I have no doubt that her Amuse Yourself initiative will be tremendously popular.
