The Great Tudor Games

Hampton Court Palace Schools Festival

Monday 15 to Friday 19 June 2020

Come and help prepare for the ultimate Tudor extravaganza!

500 years ago in June 1520 King Henry VIII of England and King Francis I of France held a magnificent tournament at the Field of Cloth of Gold in France. Each king tried to outshine the other with lavish displays of wealth such as grand feasts, jousts and games.

To mark the anniversary of this most dazzling of royal occasions, Hampton Court Palace is hosting its first ever day festival for schools. The festival will be a multi-sensory experience of history where students can immerse themselves in a Tudor world that captures the excitement of preparing for the Field of Cloth of Gold tournament.
