Butchers Guild Sponsors Jorvik Exhibition Gallery about York Guild History
On the 4th June 2015 the Master Stephen Wilkinson attended the official launch of the latest Jorvik Exhibition: Power and Glory – York in the Time of Henry VIII, in Barley Hall (www.barleyhall.co.uk ). The exhibition includes archaeology, accounts of life in the city, and the effects that this Tudor Monarch had on life in York. It also focuses on Henry VIII’s only visit to York in 1541 with his 5th wife Catherine Howard, after the events of a northern rebellion - the Pilgrimage of Grace. The Master is planning to arrange a special evening viewing for Butchers Guild members and their guests in the coming weeks.
Who is Henry VIII? – the first gallery presents some of the events in his life that shaped his reign. Example costumes are included from some of the most popular film and TV dramatizations of his time, such as ‘The Tudors’ and ‘The Six Wives of Henry VIII’.
