The Royal Progress - here it comes!

OK folks - this is it! Get ready for the Royal Event of the YEAR! Your very own chance to get up close and personal with King Henry VIIIth, the infamous Tudor Monarch, with "An Audience With The King".
This short tour of some of the more rural areas of Somerset will bring history alive for young and old alike. Good King Hal's hysterical history tour is primarily aimed at junior school children, but can be appreciated by just about anyone. After the history lesson, the King will show off his musical skills on Tudor instruments followed by an opportunity to take part in some hobby horse jousting. The whole show runs for just over an hour and the act has been described by BBC Somerset as "one of the best of its kind." And who am I to argue with that?
Ticket prices are £3.50 for adults and just 50p for children under the age of 14.
Dates and times are as follows:
13th August Seavington Millennium Hall, 3pm
14th August Compton Dundon Village Hall, 3pm
16th August Stoke-sub-Hamdon Memorial Hall, 3pm
17th August Clapton and Wayford Village Hall, 3pm
20th August East Coker Village Hall, 3pm
21st August Norton-sub-Hamdon Village Hall, 3pm
You can also come and meet the King on August 18th and 19th at Barrington Court, a National Trust property just outside Ilminster in the village of Barrington. The King will be strolling through the grounds between the hours of 12 noon and 4pm and will be happy to answer questions, chat to his peasants and even pose for photographs. Normal National Trust entrance fees apply.
