Remembering Katharine of Aragon
The Katharine of Aragon Festival takes place from today until Sunday at Peterborough Cathedral and Peterborough Museum and marks the date in January 1536 when Henry VIII’s first wife, Katharine of Aragon, who died in exile at Kimbolton Castle after almost 24 years of marriage, was buried at Peterborough Abbey (now the cathedral). A colourful procession of 300 schoolchildren led by Tudor musicians will start the Festival on Friday (27th) when they walk across Cathedral Square to the cathedral to take part in a commemorative service at 10.30am. There will be a host of events taking place throughout the weekend with special tours and cathedral services. More details at www.peterboroughcathedral.org.uk .
