Victoria’s 200th Anniversary Evening


Event Details

  • Date:

V and A 200 – 23rd May 2019

This year is the 200th anniversary of Victoria and Albert’s birth. To honour this Michael Hunter the Curator at Osborne has designed an exhibition for this particular event which will be in the exhibition room as you enter the house.There are many presents that were given to Victoria and Albert at Osborne and these are included in the exhibition.

The event will be officially opened by a member of the Royal family on the 23rd May. 

 At the same time the first tapestry panel of a group of panels will be on display as well. These panels, the brain child of one of our members Lyn Kemp, are being made by members of the community some of whom are also members of the Friends. This first panel is called Royal as it depicts things associated with Osborne House and the estate.

English Heritage has offered us the chance to see this exhibition on the evening of the 23rd before it is officially opened to the public.
Michael will be on hand to talk us through the whole concept and afterwards we will adjourn to the Duchess of Kent Suite for drinks and nibbles.

If you are interested in attending, the cost per person is £12. 
Start time 5.30pm in the exhibition Room.
