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 this 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
