Born a farmer's daughter, Bess rose to become the richest woman in Elizabethan England. She created the Cavendish dynasty, built Chatsworth House and Hardwick Hall and became a maker of queens. Bess was the closest female friend and Lady-in-Waiting to Elizabeth I and, at the same time, confidante to Mary Queen of Scots, whom Bess and her 4th husband (the Earl of Shrewsbury) kept under "house-arrest" for over 15 years until Mary's execution. They visited Buxton to "take the waters" on more than one occasion.

"Who'd 'ave thought, this Derbyshire lass would one day be tab-hanging between two great queens?"

An ambitious show presented as a seamless mix of powerful live performance and luscious film, shot on location at Hardwick Hall.
