19th MAY - A SIGNIFICANT DATE!

YES, of course, we all know about the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan and, of course, the FA Cup Final as Chelsea and Manchester United dutifully line up to follow it.
But NO, I am going back nearly 500 years to the execution of ANNE BOLEYN on 19th May 1536




.
Was she really guilty of adultery? Mark Smeaton admitted to having had an affair with her, as did others. But let us not forget, back then there were some quite ingenious ways of extracting confessions. Just visit The Tower of London and see some examples. I promise they will make your blood curdle.
To be honest, I never did trust that Oliver Cromwell chap - something about him!
Anyway, if you want to learn more and be royally entertained, just book our fabulous "Henry VIII" play.
It's my favourite of our ten productions, and I guarantee you will love it.
Fifteen characters are portrayed by two brilliant actors, and you will have the opportunity to partake in an execution, not yours, I hasten to add!
As I leave you, take a look at some of the pictures from the show.
Until next time, Albert.....
