We are offering a regular series of seminars where our Palace historian Antonia Keaney will be speaking to a number of special guests on different subjects.

These 1 hour experiences will see a number of artefacts shown during the session, including vintage photos and video. You will also have the opportunity to submit questions for the panel during these sessions to dig a little deeper into these specialist subjects.
