Marking the 300th anniversary of the accession of King George I, Royals: then & now brings major contemporary portraits to Beningbrough Hall for the first time to create a dialogue between today’s royal family and their Hanoverian ancestors.

This property-wide display includes work by Andy Warhol, Thomas Struth, Mario Testino, John Wonnacott, Chris Levine, Nicky Philipps and the first public display of Prince George of Cambridge’s official christening portrait by Jason Bell.
