Henry's Horrid History, Barrington Court, July 31st-August 1st 2010

Every once in a while, an historical event occurs that changes the course of human history...

This coming weekend could be one of those moments...
(But to be frank, it probably won't be as it's just some big ginger lummox in tights pretending to be a Tudor King)

This Saturday, July 31st and Sunday, August 1st, Mike Farley The UK's leading Henry VIII look-a-like and re-enactor will be strolling the grounds of the idyllic Barrington Court, a National Trust property in the village of Barrington just outside Ilminster in South Somerset. To prove that walking upright and breathing oxygen are not his only discernible talents, Mike will then perform his hour long one man presentation "Henry's Horrid History". There'll be laughter, tears, badly played Tudor instruments, enormous tights and more sub-Carry On humour than you can shake a stick at.

Mike will be wandering the grounds and leaping out of hedges startling old ladies from 12 noon, with the "Horrid History" show taking place between 2pm and 3pm on each day. Contact Barrington Court on 01460 241938 for more information.

Because with your Hampton Court, no one can hear you scream.
