Come and help prepare for the ultimate Tudor extravaganza!
500 years ago in June 1520 King Henry VIII of England and King Francois 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.
Schools can take part in a wide range of activities, including: watching the armouring of a knight, practicing for a joust, observing real Tudor crafts, watching a performance and playing games.
Your full-day experience at The Great Tudor Schools Festival will include:
Key Stages 1, 2, 3 and
£3.95 per student including access to the Palace for a self-led school visit.
Spaces are limited so early booking is advised.
Bookings open on Monday 2 September.
