Details Dates/Times & Buy Tickets
The Three Inch Fools present an essential guide on how to keep you head in the Tudor Court...

Unexpectedly thrust into the limelight, young Henry navigates the ups and downs of courtly life, and all whilst fighting the French (again) and re-writing religion. The Fools hit the road with this brand new comedy - a mad capped take on Britain's most epic monarch, and those infamous wives!
Bring your own blankets, cushions, and camping-chairs and join us on our outdoor adventure at the beautiful Shrewsbury Castle. Come prepared for the weather - the performance will continue come rain come shine!
