Historic Royal Palaces has launched a major £12 million remodeling endeavor at Kensington Palace called “Welcome to Kensington”, transforming the palace into a space for everyone by modifying its accessibility, introducing new education and community facilities, and reconnecting the palace with the surrounding park and new public gardens. While the work is being carried out, WILDWORKS has been tasked to cast an enchanting spell over the palace with a multi-sensory experience titled Enchanted Palace; dramatically bringing to life secret stories that illuminate the historic royal residence.

At the heart of the Enchanted Palace journey is a quest to find the seven princesses who once lived here. Visitors must navigate the palace with a map, by trusting their senses or clues encountered at every turn. The mysterious inner workings of the royal court are revealed through installations, interactive theatre, intimate storytelling, soundscapes and haunting projections, recounting tales straight out of a Shakespeare play.

Kensington Palace is no stranger to fashion, as it houses the Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection. The exhibition represents a new union between fashion designers and the Palace; for the first time, six London-based designers including Vivienne Westwood, William Tempest, Stephen Jones, Boudicca, Aminaka Wilmont and Echo Morgan have been challenged to create stunning installations based upon the dramatic stories of the people who lived in the building.
