Join us for a visit to the British Library’s exhibition on the turbulent relationship between Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots. With the threat of conspiracy ever present, communications written in code reveal how Elizabeth used a network of spies to trap and destroy her rival. A  dramatic story with a bloody conclusion. The exhibition includes some of the Library’s most exceptional 16th-century manuscripts and printed works including: Elizabeth’s stirring heart and stomach of a king speech; the papal bull excommunicating Elizabeth; and Mary’s 10-page plea for freedom.

We will be treated to an in-depth introduction to the exhibit by the Curator and, following that, you will be able to visit the exhibition at your own pace.

Tickets are priced to reflect various discounts offered by the Library.  Please contact the activity leader if you have any questions.

Please book your ticket by November 18th at the latest.
