Afternoon Buffet with
Katherine Of Aragon
Wednesday 15th April 2020
12 noon arrival for a 12:30pm start | £23.50 per person
Enjoy a delicious lunch time buffet followed by the release of Lesley’s new character – Katherine of Aragon!
Queen Katherine was the tragic first wife of Henry VIII. Her Grace was neglected, openly humiliated and an attempt was made to wipe away her marriage to Henry VIII from the history books. Why? Because she had failed to produce a living male heir to the throne. Her ‘sin’ was unforgiven by the King with Katherine taking all the blame. There only surviving child was a daughter Mary, who would go on to be Queen Mary 1st. known as “Bloody Mary”.
Queen Katherine of Aragon was no weakling though and fought against divorce with all her might standing up against the bitterness of her marriage being hauled out in detail into the public domain. Katherine of Aragon can be underestimated but in truth she was a giantess amongst women being both courageous and fantastically well-educated having born into one of the most warlike families in Europe.
The buffet will be served in the pretty tearoom at 12.30pm followed by dessert and tea or coffee. Following this you shall be taken up to the Great Hall where you begin the talk.
We ask that guests arrive no earlier than 12 noon as you will not be available to have access before this time and be ready in the tearoom at 12.30pm as the buffet will be served promptly.
