Lord Scropes Tudor Living History Weekend

August 17 @ 10:00 am - August 18 @ 5:00 pm

The year is 1588. The Spanish Armada has been sighted in the channel and the beacons lit. Come visit Lord Scrope’s Tudor household and learn about this turbulent time as they prepare to meet the invaders should they land…

Part of the reason for their coming is to avenge the death the previous year of an ex-prisoner of Bolton Castle, Mary Queen of Scots. The castle garrison is on full alert although there is no news of how the battle is going. Have the invaders been defeated, or is a Spanish army already on its way to take the castle? Lacking modern communications, news could take many days to filter through, especially in more remote regions such as Bolton Castle.

Come and train as a soldier so you would be able to defend the castle. Experience the sights and sounds of a busy Tudor kitchen responsible for feeding the garrison, see the work of the tradespeople who kept the castle running day in day out.

Included in admission price
