Mulled Wine and Mince Pies with Mary Queen of Scots

Wednesday 11th December 2019

1pm arrival for 1.30pm start | £14.50 per person

Come and join Tutbury Castle for a festive afternoon and fascinating talk with Mary Queen of Scots!

On arrival you will meet in the tearoom and at 1.30pm you will enjoy warming mince pies and mulled wine. Following this you will be taken up to the beautiful Great Hall where you will meet 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.

We ask that guests arrive no earlier than 1pm as you will not be available to have access before this time and be ready in the tearoom at 1.30pm for mince pies and mulled wine to be served promptly.
