A healthy attendance of 40 plus attended FOSC’s event at the United Reform Church, Norfolk St last night to hear popular Tudor historian David Templeman on Mary, Scotland’s Captive Queen and her sojourn in Elizabethan England.
The venue proved popular with members of the audience who were particularly appreciate of the light refreshments served up by our chair Martin Gorman and in-house professional archaeologist Anna Badcock, who led from the front, rolled up their sleeves and got stuck in.
David, chair of the Friends of Manor Lodge, several of whom were in the audience, showed commendable spirit and cooperation with the pre-event dynamic publicity which these events require. Part two of his talk charting Mary’s tragic but inevitable progress to a block at Fotheringay is on our programme for next year. Don’t miss it
