450th (+1) anniversary of Mary, Queen of Scots

On the 450th (+1) anniversary of Mary, Queen of Scots, arrival into Sheffield, the Friends of Sheffield Manor Lodge commemorate the occasion with a procession and “grand hall” dinner in the presence of Mary herself. Mary will progress in horse drawn carriage from the Tudor ruins through the Sheffield Manor Lodge site to Manor Oaks House where the Lord Mayor and the current Lord Shrewsbury-member of the House of Lords awaits to welcome her, alongside her captors the Earl of Shrewsbury and his wife, Bess of Hardwick. Here a feast will be held to mark her arrival. You are invited to join us in giving Mary a celebratory Sheffield welcome and to sit with her as we banquet.

Two ticket types are available:

Procession Only: 11:15am to 12:15pm Join Mary on her carriage ride from Turret House to Manor Oaks House where she will be welcomed by the Lord Mayor and we will host speeches and join a toast in her honour in Manor Oaks House under cover

Procession and Feast with Mary: 11:15am to 1:30pm. After the procession, we will feast with Mary, Bess, George, the current Earl of Shrewsbury and the Lord Mayor.
