To mark HM The Queen’s seventy years on the throne, join Dr Louise Stewart, Head of Exhibitions, for a tour of our current display, Platinum Jubilee Celebrations. For centuries, Londoners have been fascinated by royal ceremony, not least Sir John Soane. In September 1831, when King William and Queen Adelaide were crowned, Soane acquired a pair of sketches showing the regal coronation ceremony in Westminster Abbey. Louise will take you on a guided tour of our display of royal memorabilia commemorating coronations and jubilees, from cups and plates to hairpins and bunting. These objects, lent by staff and the local community, show how the British public, from Soane’s time to our own, have participated in royal events through collecting souvenirs and memorabilia.
This event starts promptly in the Kitchens in the Basement.
