National Tudor Heritage Open Day EMN-150826-081922001

Take a step back in time to the Tudor age and be part of a 
nationwide heritage event later this month.

Go along to St Mary’s Church in Horncastle for a Tudor 
History Tour seen through the eyes of poor Agnes.

Learn about the reformation of King Henry VIII and about the King’s Champion, including Lionel Dymoke whose two memorial plaques can still be seen in the church.

Learn something too of the history behind the scythe blades displayed above the arch leading into the Lady Chapel inside the church and are said by some to have been carried as weapons in the Lincolnshire Rising back in Tudor times.

The event, organised by St Mary’s Church in conjunction with Horncastle History & Heritage Society (the Civic Society), takes place on Saturday September 12, from 10am to 4pm.

There will be games for all, crafts and live Tudor music, a bee keeping demonstration and a Tudor bee hive.

Entry to the event will be free.

Refreshments will be on sale and proceeds from the event will be divided between St Mary’s Church and the Horncastle History & 
Heritage Society.
