King Henry VIII will be paying a visit to the Year 4 girls at the Maynard School in Exeter tomorrow, Friday 2 December for a fascinating Tudor Day. 

The King will be played by Mike Farley, one of Britain’s leading impersonators of Henry VIII, who specialises in running living history Tudor days for Key Stage 2 pupils that are historically accurate, but also funny and extremely entertaining! King Henry VIII will, naturally, be in one of his magnificent costumes, and the teachers and students at the Junior School are also donning Tudor attire for the day.

The day will include activities based around Tudor food, music, dance, family crests and portrait investigation, and will provide a fun and memorable introduction to the Tudors. King Henry will bring a variety of Tudor musical instruments with him, and will give some very authentic performances. The day will end with a grand “Tudor Jousting Tournament” (on hobby horses)!

Steve Smerdon, Head of the Maynard Junior School said, ‘We are delighted to welcome King Henry VIII to the Junior School again. It’s a wonderful opportunity for the girls to learn about the Tudors first-hand and really get an insight of what it would have been like to live under the reign of one of the country’s most memorable Kings.’
