Students will experience a fabulous live show Conflict of Church and State: An Audience with King Henry VIII.

‘His Majesty’ will be in a contemplative mood in the year 1542, reflecting on recent turbulent events, including the annulment of his marriage to Catherine of Aragon.

He will then invite his loyal subjects to petition him, or to ask him questions in a Q&A.
