Just received the latest edition of the Historic Scotland Magazine and notice two events which might be of interest.
On Sunday 11th. December at
from 12.30 to 3.30 pm. there is an event entitled; Stirling Castle
Historic Scotland Members and others are invited to come along and enjoy a very light-hearted and slightly irreverent return to the period of Mary, Queen of Scots and find out what Christmas would have been like in the Stewart Royal Court of the 16th. century.
Further information telephone 0131 668 8885.
Earlier on Sunday 27th November there is an event at
entitled; Craigmillar Castle
"Darnley must Die"
This is led by historian Allan Burnett and as advertised “he recreates the atmosphere of intrigue and skullduggery leading up to the Craigmillar Bond, a pact to dispose of Mary’s husband Henry Stuart –judge for yourself whether or not Mary was in on the plot”
This seems to be being repeated at 12 noon, 1 p.m. 2 p.m. and 3 p.m.
The above image is used in the Magazine to promote the event.
Why is Darnley dressed up as Harry Lauder and what is Mary proposing with her tickling stick?
