Meet Margery Horsman, a Maid of Honor in the royal household of King Henry VIII. Being in service throughout Henry’s reign, she is somewhat an expert in court etiquette and certainly has a tale or two to tell.
During the workshop the children will :
- Create images from the period, including a royal banquet, a game of jousting and a gory scene of crime and punishment
- Learn a traditional ‘Pavane’ dance often performed in Henry VIII’s court
- Explore the politics and religious beliefs of the time and how they affected key players during Henry’s reign
- Through performance and poetry, learn about the six wives of Henry VIII
