Field of Cloth of Gold
26th July, 2019
Fraser Randall are pleased to be appointed as Project and Cost Managers for the forthcoming exhibition on the Field of Cloth of Gold at Hampton Court Palace opening in April 2020.
In the words of Historic Royal Palaces;
‘In June 2020, it will be 500 years since Henry VIII of England and Francis I of France met near Calais for a Grand European Summit. Designed to improve relations between the two kingdoms, the princes enjoyed a fortnight of; feasts, tournaments, masquerades and religious services. So extravagant was the affair that it became known as the “Field of Cloth of Gold”. From Easter 2020 Hampton Court Palace will host a special exhibition to mark the event. You will be transported back to 1520 as they explore surviving artworks, objects and documents from the event itself and meet the key characters from the rival courts of Tudor and Valois’.
