George IV was described as ‘never so happy’ as when he was hosting a great entertainment or formal event, and at his spectacular coronation he was said to have ‘shone incomparably’. Exhibition curator Kathryn Jones will explore some of these ceremonies, discussing how this flamboyant, colourful monarch used such events to reinforce his public image.

Live speech-to-text will be provided by Stagetext for D/deaf and hard of hearing visitors.
