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).
