Have you ever wondered how the Tudors passed the time when they weren’t busy beheading wives or watching the latest Shakespeare?
If so, then Winchcombe schoolchildren should be able to teach you a thing or two when they perform at Sudeley Castle and Gardens on Sunday 1 July 2012.
Visitors will have the chance to learn about a variety of Tudor games from the local school kids – such as fencing and jousting tournaments, bear-baiting, hunting or hawking – as they dress up in traditional costumes and perform re-enactments of the games.
The performance forms part of Sudeley’s Queen Katherine Parr Quincentenary Festival – a six-month bill of historical, literary and musical events celebrating the 500th anniversary of the birth of the last and surviving wife of the notorious King Henry VIII.
