Extensive displays were devised for the Tudor Kitchens and for the King’s Apartments. Finely detailed models, film, sound, costumed interpretation and new guide books combine to bring these historic spaces to life.
The interpretive approach in the kitchens was to focus on a single event: a scale model depicts the entertainment of the French Court on the feast of St John’s Eve. The kitchens are shown as if in preparation for the feast, and populated with sound, film and live interpreters.
In the Fire Exhibition in King’s Apartments Event’s mission was twofold – to explain their restoration following the 1986 fire, and to present their historic purpose. Here, a dramatic scale model introduces the experience. Then, filmic projections in the rooms invite visitors to follow the King’s progress through to the Apartments proper, where they encounter costumed interpreters.
