A commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the death of Lady Arbella Stuart 1615 – 2015
Join us for an evening of history, drama and live music in the magnificent surroundings of Sheffield Cathedral. Featuring a talk by David Templeman on the Life of Lady Arbella Stuart, followed by a dramatic interpretation of her life, featuring the characters of Lady Arbella, Bess of Hardwick, Mary, Queen of Scots and the Doncaster Waites Tudor musicians.
Sheffield Cathedral (then Sheffield Parish Church), would have been very familiar to Arbella Stuart, who visited regularly as a child and later as an adult. Her uncle, Gilbert (7th Earl of Shrewsbury) and her aunt, the Countess Mary, lived at Sheffield Manor Lodge and are buried in the Shrewsbury Chapel vault, together with Arbella's mother, Elizabeth, Countess of Lennox.
In recognition of this close association, in partnership with Sheffield Manor Lodge, we are proud to present this event to honour Arbella's memory on the anniversary of the date of her death.
Ticket numbers are limited and so we advise booking early to avoid disappointment.
