Burnham-On-Sea theatre-goers are being invited to step back in time for an audience with King Henry VIII this Friday (October 12th).

Burnham’s Princess Theatre is hosting an entertaining history show called ‘Divorced, Beheaded, Died – an audience with King Henry VIII’.

A spokesman said: “The year is 1544 and King Henry, the Eighth of that name, is engaged upon Royal Progress about his Realm; and has halted here to afford his Loyal Subjects the opportunity to have ‘audience’ with their Sovereign Lord and King.”

“The King, recently married to his new and sixth wife, Queen Catherine Parr, is in poor health. His leg continues to cause him considerable pain and he is often in a poor humour!”

“In the course of the ‘audience’, His Majesty will recount the events of his long reign, telling of his wives and children.”

“His Majesty will invite his loyal subjects to Petition him or question him on any related subject – and a lively Q&A is assured!”

Suggested age guidance is 12+. Tickets cost £12/Concessions £10 (Groups rates available). To buy, call 01278 784464 or book online.
