Off With Her Head

What sort of man would order the beheading of his wife? Was she really that bad?

back in time to the 1500s and meet the terrifying Tudors, a domineering dynasty that changed our history. Discover an opulent court where dancing and singing goes hand in hand with swift falls from favour – and even swifter falling of heads!

Develop your painting skills in miniature, solve riddles and remember to protect your precious neck with a large white ruff – if you want to survive at Tudor court!

Flex your detective muscles and become a criminal investigator! Will you find out the facts, or will the evidence from the past bemuse you? How will you find the accused…innocent or guilty?

It’s your turn to take part in one of the most famous trials the world has ever known!
