After last year's success, Southwell Minster are delighted to welcome back Henry VIII!

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 a 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 : a lively Q&A is assured!

"What a fantastic evening …. it was difficult not to imagine that King Henry VIII had not been resurrected and had really come to see us, such was the quality of the performance"

"…. Jack Abbot played this angry King perfectly …. his acting and word-perfect delivery held the audience spellbound."

"…. magnetic performance ….. excellent script…… (you) would truly believe that they were 'in the presence' of Henry Vlll …… "
