This rolled into my mailbox today; for those of you who find Henry VIII interesting, there's to be an exhibition at Windsor Castle in April to mark the 500th anniversary of his ascension. Details can be found here:

There's an article in our paper today saying that Henry more or less invented the stairlift! He was fairly immobile later in life, so a sort of contraption was devised to haul him up and down the stairs.
