Event Details


Crowned in Gloucester Cathedral aged 9 in 1216, Henry III went on to rebuild the national treasure that is Westminster Abbey. The needs of future coronations deeply influenced Henry’s stunning Gothic design and profoundly shaped the building and the service we’ll see on May 6th. David Carpenter, the world’s leading authority on Henry III, gives a brand new talk exploring Henry’s life and creation of the Abbey as well as the fascinating historic roots of Charles III’s Coronation Service.
