Henry VIII’s gate
You will enter via Henry VIII’s gate and go onto the parade ground. This is in front of the main entrance to George’s Chapel. You will then be given access through the private area of Tudor housing to the Vicar’s Hall. A part that is not open to the general public.
Built in the year of the battle of Agincourt in 1415, Vicar’s Hall is steeped in history. At the Garter Feast held on April 23rd, 1597 a certain playwright and his Queen met in this room to see a play that was about her father and his six wives. The Queen was of course Elizabeth the first and the playwright was a certain William Shakespeare. The high vaulted ceiling and the environment provides a unique glimpse into times gone past.
The costs are as follows (for members and their guests only)
Dress: Black Tie (or dark lounge suits if that is more convenient). Ladies long or short dresses (or formal trousers if preferred).
