Event Details

Given by Susan Morrison. Kidnapping, murder and treasonous intrigue were all part of the royal day for a Stuart Monarch. From James VI, such dangers were hereditary, with both his parents victims of conspiracy. Join us to hear writer, comedian and presenter of BBC Radio Scotland’s Time Travels as she explores three plots that had a lasting impact on James VI, from his own narrow escape at Gowrie House, to the fatal undoing of his mother through the Babbington Plot and the trail of guilt surrounding his father’s murder that night in the Kirk O Fields. It’s a night of kidnap, mayhem, murder and ink!
