Divorced, Behead, Died : An Audience with King Henry VIII


Dates: 07/07/2024

Venue: Blackfriars Priory

The year is 1544 and King Henry VIII, engaged upon 'Royal Progress', has halted at Blackfriars to afford his loyal subject the opportunity to have 'audience' with their Sovereign Lord and King.

The King has embarked on such 'progresses', about his Realm, for a considerable number of years as it is wise to be rid of London – it being a place of great stinks and pestilence!

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 a poor humor!

The King, during the course of the 'audience', will recount the events of his long reign, telling of his wives and his children and will invite his subjects to petition or question him on any related subject..............there may be some surprising answers!!!!!

Doors at 11:30am

Show Starts at 12noon

Show Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes with a 20 minute interval.

The performance will take place in the North Range. A bar will be open selling drinks and light snacks.

Only drinks and snacks purchased at the venue may be consumed on the premises.
