Peterborough Cathedral and Peterborough Museum join forces for this year’s Katharine of Aragon Festival to deliver an exciting itinerary of events to celebrate and reflect on the tumultuous but remarkable life of this extraordinary woman.

Peterborough’s annual Katharine of Aragon Festival commemorates the 29th January 1536, when Henry VIII’s first wife was buried at Peterborough Cathedral after her death in exile at Kimbolton Castle. She lies in the Cathedral to this day.
