A one-stop-shop of ideas, angles and opportunities for the media in 2019.
2019 promises to be a significant year.
A transformed Hillsborough Castle will finally be unveiled this Spring after a £20 million, 5 year major project to turn this Northern Ireland landmark into a visitor attraction.
Meanwhile, at Kensington Palace, the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s birth will be marked with a new exhibition and complete representation of the rooms in which she grew up. Victoria: Woman and Crown, will examine the Queen’s role as matriarch and monarch, presiding over one of the most famous eras in our nation’s history.
Finally, Autumn 2019 will see us display the ‘Bacton Altar Cloth’ at Hampton Court Palace. We are privileged to be able to display this remarkable survival from the wardrobe of Queen Elizabeth I, in the palace in which it might once have been worn. Many hours of historical detective work from our curators and over a year of painstaking conservation work have made this display possible.
