This chapter focuses on Oxford's activities as a patron of the arts. The 16th Earl's players survived their master's death by two years, playing at Ludlow (Shropshire) as late as 1564–65. Then, following a fifteen–year hiatus, the 17th Earl took over another company altogether, the Earl of Warwick's men. Warwick remained patron on 1 January 1580, but by April the company's transfer to Oxford was complete. Oxford also patronized boy actors, tumblers, and musicians.

Keywords:   patronage, Earl of Warwick, 16th Earl's players, actors, tumblers, musicians
