This summer step into history and follow the last 17 days of Anne Boleyn, second wife of King Henry VIII, in a new live performance at the Tower of London.

The Last Days of Anne Boleyn explores the Tudor Queen’s tragic story at the famous fortress from her imprisonment, through to her trial and execution.

It's May 1536 and Anne is negotiating with the court and the King’s representatives, including Thomas Cromwell, amid accusations of adultery and plotting against the King’s life.

From hope to hopelessness, watch this historic event unfold in the place where it happened. Was she a ruthless schemer or simply a tragic victim of court politics?
