Tudors on Tour

Pinewood Creative worked with Historic Royal Palaces again to help re-create the splendour on Henry VIII’s travelling court when it visited Tatton Park in Cheshire.

For this, Pinewood Creative built, installed and de-rigged the Tudor gatehouse, Village cross, Tree Dias and the Royal Dias. These involved creating steel structures, extensive carpentry, set build and set theming.

Over 10,000 people joined for a magical weekend of jousting, performance, crafts and much more. Visitors stepped into a Tudor world and tried their hands at Tudor crafts, crossbow and watched the joust. The festival, doused in theatrics and revelry, submerged visitors into an enchanting Tudor world and transformed their weekend.
