An Evening with ‘Mary Queen of Scots’
May 6, 2022 - May 7, 2022
Families can come and meet Mary Queen of Scots as Lord and Lady Scrope prepare for her arrival at Bolton Castle. An interactive session for all ages.
The execution of Mary Queen of the Scots on the 8 February 1587 shocked Europe to the core and gave rise to an often maligned Queen but an instantly recognisable figure, adored by many to this day.
Jane Collier of the Marie Stuart Society and reenactor with Discover Buxton, will give you an intimate view of this gifted, charming, fun loving and intensely loyal Queen, her stay at Bolton Castle still a time of hope for her, and her descent into despair during her 19 years of illegal imprisonment before the inevitable tragic end.
Friday 6 May 6.45pm to 8pm
Saturday 7 May 11am to 3pm
