7pm arrival, for a 7:30pm start | £45.00 per person
On Friday 28th or Saturday 29th January, join the Tutbury Castle for a night bedecked in tartan and tam o’shanters, all in celebration of Scotland’s favorite son, Robert Burns.
Our very own Mary Queen of Scots will provide the entertainment for the evening following the delicious traditional Scottish fest. Please see attached menu and book you choice when booking tickets.
Mary Queen of Scots was queen of Scotland and France, and a dangerous claimant for the English throne. She was a great beauty, and very well educated, but was a fool for men, something her cousin and rival Elizabeth of England was careful to avoid. After being forced to flee from Scotland by her rebellious subjects, she was held prisoner at various properties in the Midlands and Yorkshire. Among these, her most hated was Tutbury Castle, where she was held on four occasions. It was here that she became embroiled in the plots which were eventually to cost her life. She left Tutbury for the last time in 1585 when she was moved to nearby Chartley. There she was arrested and sent to Fotheringhay Castle in Northamptonshire where she was executed in 1587. Meet the tragic queen during her final imprisonment at Tutbury and share her hopes and fears as her dramatic tale approaches its bitter conclusion.
Arrival is at 7pm, where you may enjoy a drink in the tearoom, until you are seated in the Great Hall at 7.30pm. Following dessert, you will return to the tearoom for tea and coffee, whilst the Great Hall is rearranged for the performance with Mary Queen of Scots.
