Cream Tea with Mary Queen of Scots
Tuesday 23 October 2018
This tragic queen was captive at Tutbury Castle on four occasions and was Lesley ‘s First character.
Mary’s life was both glory and horror ending in her execution by the axe on 8th February 1587 following almost 19 years of captivity by order of her cousin Queen Elizabeth 1st. Mary Stuart was queen of France and Scotland with many believing she was also rightful queen of England refusing to accept Anne Boleyn as legitimate wife of King Henry VIII. Mary was also beautiful, artistic and highly educated but some of her choices contributed to her desperate end.
Tickets £14.50 per person
Please be aware that the talk will take place in our Great Hall, which is up a flight of stairs. There is no lift access at the castle. For more information, please visit the page on Accessibility on our website
