Talk with Katherine of Aragon

Friday 23rd October 2020

7pm arrival for a 7:20pm start | Tickets cost £12.50 per person


Enjoy a warming glass of mulled wine 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.
