Our professional actor will visit your school with a pop-up theatre, to set the scene for the Tudors.

The pupils will meet a lady in waiting to King Henry VIII.

She will spill the beans on why his majesty married so many times, and what happened to his wives. Ask her questions and with your pupils help act out important moments of Tudor history.

And if that’s not enough to inspire your class

Her majesty QUEEN ELIZABETH I will also be visiting, to discuss with her loyal subjects why she decided never to marry, how she defeated the Spanish Armada and ruled over the Golden Age of exploration and discovery.
