Buffet and Talk with Mary Queen of Scots

Thursday 29th August 2019

7pm arrival for 7.30pm start | Tickets – £23.50pp

Come and join Tutbury Castle for a fantastic buffet and fascinating talk with Mary Queen of Scots!

Mary Queen of Scots was held prisoner at Tutbury Castle on four occasions and it was her first English prison. She left Tutbury for the last time in 1585 when she was moved to Chartley. From there she was sent to Fotheringhay Castle in Northamptonshire where she was executed in 1586.

Here is a chance to meet Mary Queen of Scots in full authentic costume during her imprisonment at Tutbury where she spent a lot of time reading, writing letters and doing embroidery. Learn about Mary’s three marriages and about life in general in Tudor times.

The buffet will be served in the pretty tearoom at 7.30pm followed by dessert and tea or coffee. Following this you shall be taken up to the Great Hall where you will be met by Mary Queen of Scots.

We ask that guests arrive no earlier than 7pm as you will not be available to have access before this time and be ready in the tearoom at 7.30pm as the buffet will be served promptly.
