The stars of the hit musical SIX, a 21st century retelling of the lives of the six wives of Henry VIII, took a step back in time as they visited Sudeley Castle in Winchcombe, the final home and resting place of Henry’s last wife, Catherine Parr.

Catherine Parr (played by Athena Collins in the multi Olivier Award nominated show) came face to face with Sudeley’s own Catherine Parr (played by Elle MacPherson of Past-Times Living History) as 21st century Pop Princess met Tudor Queen.
