In 2014 Historic Royal Palaces has brought the ‘Glorious Georges’ and the allure of the Georgian Court to life at Hampton Court, Kensington and Kew Palaces in a series of exhibitions to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the Hanoverian accession to the British throne. The exhibition sheds light on an era of the royal family that is often overlooked.

Glorious Georges aims to be an ‘immersive’ experience that ‘brings the court to life’… As you mount the splendid staircase, you hear Handel and smell beeswax; you are later invited to gamble at three eighteenth-century style tables, and dress up in court clothing.

Sysco was involved in two of the three exhibitions spread across London, where visitors have the opportunity to discover a different story within each of the palaces, as the spotlight moves from George I to his son George II, and finally his great grandson George III.

Sysco has worked with Historic Royal Palaces on a number of previous exhibitions, to deliver and help develop innovative AV solutions. In this exhibition, 3D mapping was used to project media on to mannequins and give the illusion of gracefully dancing courtiers in a dimly lit room at Hampton Court Palace.
