HISTORIC TALK: Divorced, Beheaded, Died... An Audience with King Henry VIII brought to us by performance historian John White.
The year is 1544 and King Henry, the Eighth of that name, is engaged upon a Royal Progress about his Realm; and has halted here to afford his Loyal Subjects the opportunity to have an ‘audience’ with their Sovereign Lord and King. The King, recently married to his new, and sixth, wife, Queen Catherine Parr, is in poor health; his leg continues to cause him considerable pain and he is often in poor humour! In the course of the ‘audience’, His Majesty will recount the events of his long reign; telling of his wives and his children. His Majesty will invite his Loyal Subjects to Petition him or question him on ANY related subject: there may be some surprising answers - a lively Q&A is assured!’ Brought to us by performance historian John White.
