Promoting the life and times of Mary, Queen of Scots

Society Annual Gathering 2018

Dear Society members,

Please find links below to the programme and registration form for our forthcoming Annual Gathering. Our Constitution requires us to hold the Gathering at ‘a suitable place of Marian interest’ and as this year marks the 450th Anniversary of Mary’s stay in Carlisle, it is very appropriate that we selected this (at last year’s Gathering) as our 2018 venue.

This year also marks the 25th AGM of the Society – quite a milestone! – so we will celebrate that with a celebration cake; and we also have a special features of a raffle and the launch of our membership badge – both these ideas were suggested by members so thank you for that, as I am sure they will add to the day.

The AGM papers will be sent out separately later this month.

For those able to stay on for the Saturday afternoon, a visit to the Cathedral and Castle is recommended. And if you are also able to stay on overnight, following Mary’s footsteps from her landing place in Workington back to Carlisle on the Sunday will be a real treat. Syd Whitehead’s Chronology and detailed knowledge of the area will ensure we leave the weekend with a full understanding of this particular part of Mary’s life.

So I look forward to hearing from you in the coming weeks. Please don’t hesitate to call on 0779 604 4903 or email if you have any queries or want further information before responding.

Kindest regards for now
