Portrait of Charles I and Henrietta Maria
Our object of the month for July can be found hanging above our reception desk in the North Hall. It is a large 17th-century portrait of Charles I with his wife, Henrietta Maria. It is a copy of a painting which symbolised both the harmonious relationship between the King and Queen, and a key point in the career of the famous portrait artist Van Dyck.
2019 Literary Festival
We have created a compilation of the best pictures from this year’s literary festival and the podcasts are now available to listen to. We hope you enjoy them…
