Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea and Talk at Tutbury Castle

Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea and Talk at Tutbury Castle

SOLD OUT

Join Tutbury Castle this Mother’s Day for a fantastic talk from the mother of the nation, Elizabeth I followed by a delicious afternoon tea.

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.
