Storytelling at Bolsover Castle

This year, over selected days, our visitors will have the opportunity to meet our Storytellers and hear exciting tales and histories from Bolsover Castle. Attired in colourful costumes inspired by the castle’s history the volunteers will be telling a range of fantastic stories and anecdotes to our visitors. Don't be surprised if you bump into Margaret or William Cavendish themselves while walking the walled garden or exploring the terrace range...
