SOLD OUT Christmas Tea with Elizabeth I


3rd December 2023

3:30pm Arrival. 4pm Tea. Performance starts from 4:30pm

Here is a chance to meet Her Majesty at her political zenith and already an icon in an English psyche. Join us for a splendid Tudor-inspired afternoon tea in the Great Hall, followed by a glittering presentation that will transport you back to the time of Drake, Raleigh and Shakespeare on England’s voyage into the Renaissance.

There is no doubt that Gloriana had one of the most profound effects on English and European politics. The Protestant queen in the cold bed was given a matter of months on the throne by observers of the day believing she could not hope to survive. Queen Elizabeth, in fact, went on to rule England longer than any other monarch before her. Her passionate belief in the English people and her lack of martial ambition combined with a brilliant mind and outstanding political skills is why she was so hugely successful. Confounding all.

Tea will be served at 4:00pm on Sunday 3rd December (arrival advised from 3:30pm), with Her Majesty making her entrance shortly afterwards.

Tickets cost £27.00 per person. £32.00 with a glass of Prosecco.
