Divorced, Beheaded, Died - An Audience with King Henry VIII

Cossham Hall, Thornbury

A performance presented by the Armstrong Arts Group and the Select Society Company, written by John White and performed by Jack Abbot.

The year is 1544 and King Henry the eighth, of that name, is engaged upon Royal Progress about his Realm; and has halted here to afford his loyal subjects the opportunity to have ”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, and 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!

Tickets £12 or £10 concessions over 65 from Thornbury Town Hall or ring 01454 412272.

Enjoy arts events locally whilst raising funds towards the Armstrong Hall redevelopment fund.
