Talk with Elizabeth I

Tuesday 13th July 2021

£17.50 per person.

12:30pm arrival for a 1pm start


There is no doubt that Elizabeth I had one of the most profound effects on English and European politics of any British ruler. The Protestant queen in the cold bed was given a matter of months on the throne by Catholic observers of the day, believing she could not hope to survive. Instead, Elizabeth in fact went on to rule England for nearly forty-five years, mostly in peace. Her passionate belief in the English people and her lack of martial ambition combined with a brilliant mind and outstanding political skills made her hugely successful, confounding all her critics.

Here is a chance to meet Her Majesty at her political zenith and already an icon in an English psyche. This glittering presentation will transport the audience back to the time of Drake, Raleigh and Shakespeare, on England’s voyage into the Renaissance.

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.
