David Templeman

Mary Queen of Scots: The Captive Queen in England, 1568–87
About the event

Join us in the newly refurbished Pump Room for the launch of David Templeman’s new book on the English captivity of Mary, Queen of Scots. After years of painstaking research David answers the great conundrum as to what really happened to Mary in her wilderness years and answers the questions of why, when and where which arise on the way. A fascinating illustrated talk promotes the book which will be on sale at the event plus a book signing of course.

So join him on a journey around Carlisle Castle, Bolton Castle, Tutbury, Wingfield Manor, Chatsworth, Sheffield Castle and Manor Lodge, Buxton and Worksop Manor. Rather than the benign period portrayed by her biographers, the talk conveys intrigue, passion, plots and escape attempts.

David Templeman is an Elizabethan historian and National speaker. He last appeared in Buxton at the Festival in 2009 where his talk was so popular he had to repeat it twice in the same afternoon to an audience of 100 each time.
