Cream Tea and Talk with Mary Queen of Scots


 Friday 27th August 2021

 2pm arrival for 2.30pm start.

Tickets – £17.50pp

Come and join Tutbury Castle for a fantastic Cream Tea 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 talk will take place in the great hall at 2.30pm prompt. We ask that phones are switched off during the performance and that no photos are taken. After the performance, there will be a chance to ask questions and photo opportunities. Following the talk, the Cream Tea will be served in the pretty tearoom.

We ask that guests arrive no earlier than 2pm, as you will not be able to access The Castle before this time.

Tickets are £17.50pp and must be bought in advance.

The cream tea will include:

Two fresh fruit scones

Clotted Cream

Selection of Jams


A choice of Tea or Coffee.
