Lady Arbella Stuart – The Queen that Never Was

Friday 25 September at 7.15pm Sheffield Cathedral

arbella stewartThe Friends of Manor Lodge and Sheffield Cathedral are pleased to present a commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the death of Lady Arbella Stuart, 1615 – 2015.

Join us for an evening of history, drama and music in the magnificent surroundings of Sheffield Cathedral as we enjoy a talk by David Templeman on the Life of Lady Arbella Stuart, followed after the interval by a dramatic interpretation of her life, featuring the characters of Lady Arbella, Bess of Hardwick and Mary, Queen of Scots. The evening will conclude with a grand procession of the principal characters and their ladies-in-waiting to lay a wreath at the Tudor Shrewsbury Chapel within the Cathedral.

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 we are proud to present this event to honour Arbella’s memory on the anniversary of the date of her death. Please book early as tickets are limited.

Tickets prices £12 / £10 concessions (60+)

Available in person from Sheffield Cathedral shop on 0114 263 6075
