Jubilee Events: Pop Up Mini Exhibition
2nd Jun from 11.30am - 3.30pm
Thursday 2nd June Onwards
From Thursday 2nd June, we will be displaying the family's personal collection of Coronation memorabilia in the Nether Gallery.
The 2nd Viscount De L’Isle, in whose family Penshurst Place has been since 1552, has fond memories of his father’s involvement in The Queen’s ascension, who as a member of the privy council was present when HM The Queen took her oath of office in 1952, before attending her Coronation the following year.
On display will be a collection of invitations and mourning guides that were saved by 2nd Viscount De L'Isle's Mother and Father, alongside their chairs from the occasion. The exhibition will be in situ until the anniversary of the coronation in 2023.
An upgrade to a House ticket is required to view the collection
