About the Event

Lesley Smith is back by popular demand, this time as Anne Boleyn. Lesley Smith is no stranger to Oxfordshire WI, and is well known for her portrayal of historical characters. She has been curator at Tutbury Castle since 2000.

For centuries, Henry VIII’s second wife has been portrayed as a cunning and manipulative woman, responsible for causing the bloody aspects of the Reformation in England. In truth, Anne was a highly educated and profoundly religious person who cared deeply about her moral standing. There is also evidence that Anne really did love Henry, even though he turned against her when she failed to provide the son he craved.

In this portrayal of Anne, she will appear by candlelight in her execution gown during the last 45 minutes of her life in the Tower of London. Bear witness as she prepares to leave Henry and join the King of Kings.

Refreshments and cake are included; please bring your own mug.

Please note: tickets are non-refundable

Booking open Monday 5 September to Monday 31 October
