Enchanted Palace

Richard Lea-Hair,

Time Out says

A spectacular, sometimes moving, exhibition merging fashion, art and theatre to tell the stories of the palace allows you to immerse yourself in the lives of its most famous princess inhabitants – Mary, Anne, Caroline, Charlotte, Victoria, Margaret and Diana. Vivienne Westwood has created a 'rebellious dress' for George IV's spirited daughter Princess Charlotte (1796-1817). In the 'Privy Chamber' milliner Stephen Jones has produced a dream-like installation of hats inspired by the palace's busts of Sir Isaac Newton and his law of motion. There is no set path around this exhibition: wander at your own pace, gleaning wonderful nuggets of information from the knowledgeable palace staff, who have been actively encouraged to interact with visitors, and the 'detectors', actors dressed in grey monk-like uniforms who walk the rooms singing, chanting and telling stories, under the direction of Wildworks, the Cornwall-based theatre group known for producing events in unusual places.
