Historian and writer, Dr Jonathan Foyle will be giving a talk as part of the 2016 Katharine of Aragon Festival weekend in Peterborough, from January 29 to 31.

Dr Foyle will give an illustrated talk on the origins of the Tudor rose as a symbol in the beautiful setting of Peterborough Cathedral on Friday, January 29 at 7.30pm.

This talk answers those questions to completely revise the origin and primary meaning of the ‘Tudor rose’. An understanding of how daisies, marigolds, red and white roses were used to convey the qualities of Christ and the Virgin Mary in the fifteenth century challenges our centuries-old assumptions and throws unexpected new light on the self-identity of the first ‘Tudors’.

Tickets for the talk are now on sale at £11 (£5.50 for under 18s) including a drink after the talk. To book phone Oundle Box Office on 01832 274734 or visit www.peterborough-cathedral.org.uk/
