A living history weekend will take place at Bolton Castle next week.

The event will be held on August 12 and 13.

Kendra Grahame-Clarke, spokesperson for the castle, said: “One of our most popular weekends, this year, we’re welcoming Mary Queen of Scots as well to bring history alive and provide a taste of Tudor life at a key moment in our country’s history.

“Our living historians are on site to help you discover more about the life and times of, arguably, Bolton Castle’s most famous resident, Mary Queen of Scots. Come and see the rooms where she spent the six months of her captivity.”
