An Audience with Henry VIII and His Six Wives
This talented group of performers have created a unique 30 minute performance which sees Henry VIII and his Six Wives perform an interactive and engaging tale of love, marriage, loss and determination. Suitable for all age ranges and catering for the most learned students of Tudor History as well as complete novices these shows feature individual performances from each of the characters and a competitive question and answer session with many visitors coming back for the second performance just to try and outwit His Majesty with a never before thought of question!
An Audience with Henry VIII and his Six Wives includes 2 x 30 minute displays but when not in the show Henry VIII parades with (and occasionally hides from!) all Six of his Wives across your venue, each wife knowing about the other and the intrigue and rivalry that ensues as each one wants to keep her head. Engaging visitors through-out your opening times and across your venue, drawing in crowds and guiding your visitors through the day.
- Unique 30 minute performances
- Suitable for all age ranges and knowledge levels
- Interactive and Engaging
Realising the importance of positive reviews to a venue, this group have contributed to many 5* reviews on Trip Adviser and go out of their way to make visitors feel welcome. Some of the performers (including Henry VIII) are also multi-lingual.
Although often the star attraction, Henry is very often outshone by his talented wives and their remarkable achievements in their own rights which these performers have captured remarkably in their portrayal. Although known as the wives of Henry VIII each performer has thoroughly researched the women they are portraying giving an in-depth and balanced record of their lives.
“Whole family loved it, especially my two sons! Really look forward to seeing them again” Adam Robbins
