Picnic with Mary Queen of Scots

Picnic with Mary Queen of Scots

Come and join Tutbury Castle this June for an entertaining picnic!

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 Fortheringhay 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.

Following the talk, guests will be provided with a lovely picnic box to enjoy in our beautiful marquee.
