Event Details

A captive queen; a fight for survival...

The talk will follow Mary Queen of Scots on her journey as a captive queen around Carlisle, Bolton Castle (Wensleydale), Tutbury Castle, Wingfield Manor, Chatsworth, Sheffield Castle and Manor Lodge, Buxton, Worksop Manor and Chartley Manor in Staffordshire.

Rather than the benign period portrayed by some of Mary's biographers, the talk will convey intrigue, passion, plots and escape attempts during the Stewart queen's years of imprisonment.

Historian David Templeman will discuss:

* What life was like for Mary in her various prisons
* The various means by which she attempted to control her fate
* The queen's perilous escape attempts
