Historian as after dinner speaker

Tudor actor interpreter

Tony Strange is an actor specialising in Henry VIII. He has played Henry on stage and at castles and palaces for ten years. You can rely on Tony to make an event themed on the Tudors go smoothly.

He has appeared before members of the Royal Family, a US President's wife and ‘Queen of Comedy’ Joan Rivers along with more than 400,000 members of the public. He has performed at Hampton Court Palace, Warwick Castle and the London Banquet. His interpretation of Henry has even come under the watchful eye of historian David Starkey.

Tony studied the role under top academics to learn the hard facts and then brought his own inimitable style to the part. He is at turns, charming, hilarious and menacing. His backup team can lay on the catering for your Tudor banquet!

He has been described by The Stage as 'an assured wit and raconteur' and uses compering skills to run events and entertain at unctions and banquets. He gives lectures up and down the country.
