Workshop

A magnificent tournament was held 500 years ago in 1520 between Henry VIII of England and the French King, Francis I. The intention was to increase the bonds of friendship between two countries. They met in a field near Calais to enjoy games, feast on fine meats and drink from a perpetually flowing wine fountain. Due to the splendour of the temporary golden pavillion that was built, the event became known as 'The Field of Cloth of Gold'. 

A series of displays inside the Castle will tell the story of the great events that took place in 1520; the purpose, the players, the politics and the extravagance. Find out about the role of Leeds Castle played and what the Castle was like during the reign of Henry VIII.
