Come and join Tutbury Castle for a Jacket Potato lunch 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.

Jacket Potatoes will be served in the pretty tearoom at 12.30pm followed by cake served with 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 12 noon and be ready in the tearoom at 12.30pm as lunch will be served promptly.
