15 November @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Join us for a docent tour of 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.

The Library has not determined the cost of the tour nor the number of attendees permitted yet, however the date is secured.  Please register your interest by booking a “free” ticket below and I will contact you once the price and number of attendees is confirmed.
