A FEAST fit for a king complete with music and entertainment was laid on for primary school pupils who stepped into the shoes of their Tudor ancestors.

The group of 70 year five pupils at Meon Juniors in Southsea dressed to impress for their Tudor Banquet in the presence of Henry VIII, played by site manager Doug Richards accompanied by one of his six wives on his arm.

Boys and girls tucked into snacks including chicken, pasties and cheese while some of their peers played tunes like Greensleeves on guitars and recorders – with a drum roll reserved for special entrances.

Christine Turner, deputy head, said: ‘It was a fantastic event to round off the topic of the Tudors as it really brought the subject to life.

‘The costumes were fantastic and the attention to detail was impressive, even down to the food, the choice of music and the forms of entertainment – like juggling which the pupils practised hard to master!’
