Eleanor Longshanks - the story of the woman behind the Crosses

  • York House London Road Milton Keynes MK11 1JQ United Kingdom (map)

Stony has a secret, it once hosted a magnificent memorial to Queen Eleanor, wife to Edward I. But what’s so memorable about a medieval, bookish gardener? Come hear the story.

This is a storytelling performance for grown ups performed by Sue and Hannah. We have spent the last year researching the history of Eleanor of Castile memorialised in 12 locations by Edward I. This show will draw her out from the shadows, play with the Arthurian legends she loved, and honour the goodness she brought to their relationship. If you love stories, love Stony and love women, then you will love our show.
