Conflict between Church and State: An Audience with King Henry VIII

Cathedral and online
Saturday 29 January 2022 19:00 - 20:00

Performance historian, John White, invites you into His Majesty's presence as he conducts a Royal Progress about his realm.

The year is 1542 and His Majesty, King Henry VIII, despite increasing age, is again engaged upon a Royal Progress about his realm.

His Majesty is in contemplative mood with the events of recent years weighing heavily upon him: the annulment of his marriage to Katherine of Aragon, the break with Rome, the dissolution of the monasteries, the revolt in the north. 

In the course of the ‘Audience’ His Majesty (also known as actor John White) will invite his loyal subjects to petition him, or to ask of him a question: a lively Question and Answer session is assured!

This event will also be available online.
