Event Short Description

The Field of Cloth of Gold: 6,000 Days – How Did They Do It? by Joanna Mabbutt

Event Information

The Arts Society talk with Joanna Mabbutt

In June 1520 Henry VIII and Francis 1 met to ratify an Anglo-French alliance and celebrate the betrothal of Henry’s daughter Mary to the Dauphin. Each brings an entourage of 6,000 to a field south of Calais for events and entertainments staged to display the skill and splendour of each King and country.

The logistics of organising this event is staggering and the supply chain fascinating.
