Talk with Katherine of Argon

Thursday 29th July 2021

7pm arrival for a 7.30pm start.

£22.50 per person.

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.


Begin the evening with a fabulous buffet in our grand Great Hall. Please see attached buffet menu. Please do contact the castle office if you have any dietary requirements as, without prior notice we will not be able to cater for you on the day.
