I am delighted to be welcoming Gill back for another of her wonderful history talks.
This talk will be about Henry VIII and the Field of The Cloth of Gold in June 1520 – 500 years ago this year, the King of France and King of England met in a field outside Calais to celebrate peace. These celebrations are known as The Field of The Cloth of Gold because of their extravagance and luxury, a magnificence captured in the famous painting at Hampton Court. The diplomatic negotiations were ultimately worthless but for Henry VIII and Francois I, it was a chance to compete for honour and Glory. This talk explores the history and the artistry of this magnificent yet futile event.
12 for 1230 – 2 course lunch, followed by the talk
