5933842The Field Of Cloth Of Gold
DateFriday 27th March 2020 to Sunday 15th November 2020
DescriptionA new exhibition and action-packed programme of events to mark the 500th anniversary of The Field of Cloth of Gold, Henry VIII's spectacular meeting with Francois I of France, one of the greatest and most conspicuous displays of wealth, pageantry and culture that Europe had ever seen. In June 1520 Henry VIII and Francois I met outside Calais in France for a diplomatic and sporting event of unprecedented scale and ambition - The Field of Cloth of Gold. Our new exhibition will bring together for the first time a collection of remarkable objects, including some of Henry VIII's most important armours, specially created for him to wear at The Field of Cloth of Gold. Travel back in time and explore with us the development of Henry's armoury, the challenges of transporting the English court to France, the spectacle of the tournament and the political power play at the heart of the event.
Time(s)Mon-Sun 10am-5pm, closed Mar 27-Apr 30, ends Nov 15
