Event Description

King Henry VIII acquired the palace from his disgraced Lord Chancellor, enlarging and embellishing it to suit his needs and adding sporting areas for his entertainment. In the following century King Charles I assembled a superb art collection here, but in 1698 fire destroyed most of the principal buildings along with many fine artworks. This talk reveals Henry VIII’s passion for Anne Boleyn, James I’s introduction to the Gods and Charles I’s final minutes before his execution.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!

Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.

Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.
