This summer, Queen Caroline cordially invites families to join her for a garden party in the grounds of Kensington Palace. Don a powdered wig, perfect your best bows and curtseys, and enjoy an audience with the Queen, as the glittering Georgian Court takes to the palace gardens for a summer celebration of music, dancing, ice cream, and theatre.
The palace will be turned inside out for the weekend, as tents pop up in the beautiful ornamental gardens, each packed with special activities representing different aspects of court life. In the ‘Dressing Room’, dress to impress as one of Queen Caroline’s courtiers, try on costumes for size and sample the art of Georgian makeup; hear all the latest whispers from court in the ‘Queen’s Library’; get a Han-del on some eighteenth century tunes in the music tent; and discover the history of Georgian ice-cream in the 'Ice-House' with AVM Curiosities, sampling authentic 18th century flavours courtesy of Jolly Nice Ice Cream.
