Henry’s Horrid History
Henry VIII look-alike, Mike Farley, was resident in the Maiden’s Tower to meet the children over the half-term break with a description of life in Tudor England. The children were treated to an entertaining look at the grime, diseases and cures practiced in the 16th century. Also on offer was picture colouring and mask making.
Mike Farley’s website is at http://www.goodkinghal.co.uk and he may be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Henry was also an able musician ...
... on more than one instrument ...
... sometimes needing a lot of puff!
Meanwhile some children used the opportunity to colour pictures ...
