Sudeley Castle in Gloucestershire is to celebrate the quincentenary of a remarkable English queen. Katherine Parr was the last of Henry VIII’s six wives. Born in 1512, she married Henry in 1543 and following his death she married Lord Seymour of Sudeley. She lived and died at the castle, where she is buried in the chapel. Special events during 2012 include afternoon teas with Lady Ashcombe, who now resides at the castle, and family Tudor fun days. The castle is open from April 1 to October 28; for more information go to www.sudeleycastle.co.uk.
